The Special Master said the program has used about $5 billion of its $7.375 billion budget to pay 21,000 claims. "It is set to go to 2020 but because of the amount of people that have claims in that money is disappearing faster than they thought".

Stewart penned an op-ed for New York Daily News out Monday morning in which he lamented the news that the Justice Department is being forced to make drastic cuts to the VCF despite how first responders and families of victims still struggle with the aftereffects of 9/11. "This is Congress's fault because they keep insulting us and they keep playing games and giving us five-year bills", he said.

"Many, numerous people who are sick and dying - or dead - would not have gotten sick had it not been for the federal government, and the mayor of the City of New York, Rudy Giuliani, telling everybody the air was safe to breathe, and they could work on the pile and don't worry about it", Nadler said.

The health care fund has already been authorized for what is functionally a permanent authorization, but the compensation fund is not. Nadler said Monday that the Judiciary Committee will consider and the House will pass it independent of each other.

Schumer, another native of New York City, said that he would make sure senators vote.

"We're going to challenge every member of Congress and the Senate".

"Not a day does by where I don't get another 10 to 12 new people with cancer", attorney Michael Barasch said.

"I see there is a tremendous amount of news happening", Stewart told Sandra Smith the morning after the Oscars, with President Donald Trump heading to Vietnam to meet again with North Korean ruler Kim Jong Un, and Washington battling over Robert Mueller's report on former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, etc.

"I'm not going to comment on anything else", he added.

Gardner and New York Rep.

"I had never had the opportunity to travel to NY to see the World Trade Centers as they were standing". Stewart has been involved in urging support for the first responders, volunteers, and survivors of the September 11 attacks. "Saying "Never Forget" is not enough, and now is the time to show these heroes that they will never be forgotten".

"I have one monkey trick and that is to hopefully help shine a light or bring some attention to what these men and women are doing in the shadows", he said.
