Spending Bill Contains $70M for 9/11 Health Programs

Members of Congress said a spending bill expected to come before the House includes $70 million in new funding for federal 9/11 health programs.

The funding is expected to cover the World Trade Center Medical Monitoring and Treatment Program's expenses for this fiscal year. That's according to a statement from New York Reps. Carolyn Maloney, Jerrold Nadler, Peter King, and Michael McMahon.
The new money would be combined with $112 million carried over from past years.
The bill could come before the House as early as Wednesday.
