U.S. Senator Jon Tester today released the following statement in recognition of the 18th anniversary of the September 11th, 2001 terrorist attacks:

“Like all Americans, I will never forget the dread and grief I felt on that horrific day. But while the attacks were meant to destroy us, they ultimately proved our nation’s strength and resilience. As we pause to remember those we lost, let’s also reflect on the lessons we learned in the days and weeks after September 11th that bear repeating today - much more unites us than divides us, and we are stronger when we stick together.”

 

In July, Tester voted to pass the Never Forget the Heroes: Permanent Authorization of the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund Act. The 9/11 Victims Compensation Fund provides resources for first responders who were injured, became ill, or died as a result of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. The reauthorization of this legislation will finance full payments to first responders for 9/11-related health conditions for 70 years. Since its creation, more than 50,000 first responders have been diagnosed with 9/11-related health issues, including chronic asthma, heart disease, and cancer.
