Two programs that support first responders who became sick because of 9/11 are going to be included in the latest federal spending bill.
Some of the funding for those programs expired in October, when Congress failed to pass a long-term bill to fund the government.
U.S. Senators Kirsten Gillibrand and Chuck Schumer of New York announced today that Senate and House leaders agreed to renew the World Trade Center Health Program for the next 75 years. That program helps pay medical bills for first responders.
