On July 23 The U.S. Senate passed a bill to permanently fund compensation for victims and first responders of the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks.

Named the “Never Forget the Heroes Act,” the bill extends the 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund through 2090. The House passed the bill earlier this month, and President Donald Trump is expected to sign it into law.

Brooklyn Monsignor Robert Romano is very familiar with the pain and suffering of the 9/11 heroes.

He is an NYPD chaplain who was at Ground Zero every day for months after the terrorists brought down the World Trade Center.

He joins us to talk about how this new measure will help survivors and their families.
