A few of New York's notably passionate members of Congress say the Senate must pass the 9/11 Health and Compensation Act soon. The Daily News explains, "The reason is simple: Just 17 Republicans voted for the $7.4 billion James Zadroga Health and Compensation Act when it passed in the House." If the Senate fails to pass it, then the House has to start again, and by that time, it will be a Republican-controlled House. Rep. Peter King (R-LI) said, "Right now, it's now or never for the 9/11 bill," while Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-Queens) said, "If we're not able to pass the 9/11 bill in the lame duck, I think the reasonable conclusion is it's dead."
