The House of Representatives voted Friday to pass a bill that will extend the 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund through 2090.

The vote was 402-12. The bill now goes to the Senate, where Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has said he will hold a vote.

If it passes, any benefits that were cut due to lack of money would be reinstated.

The legislation's full name is be "Never Forget the Heroes: James Zadroga, Ray Pfeifer, and Luis Alvarez Permanent Authorization of the September 11 Victim Compensation Act."
