House panel approves permanent Sept. 11 victims’ compensation

A congressional committee on Wednesday unanimously approved legislation to extend the fund compensating first responders to the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks on the WTC for the next 70 years. The move comes a day after television personality Jon Stewart castigated lawmakers at a hearing for their slow response to helping first responders. The bill now heads to the full House for debate.
