Vote expected on revised 9/11 health bill
A scaled-back 9/11 health bill that would offer help to sick World Trade Center workers is expected to be voted on today.
The revised legislation trims the cost to $6.2 billion from $7.4 billion. The original bill was voted down by Senate Republicans.
The bill is named after James Zadroga, a police detective who became ill after taking part in recovery efforts at Ground Zero.
