The Senate overwhelmingly passed the 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund through 2092 by a vote of 97-2. The fund, created after 9/11 in 2001, distributed over $7 billion to victims and their families through 2004. It was reactivated in 2011 and reauthorized for five years in 2015. It was set to expire in December 2020. The fund secures health care costs for 9/11 victims and first responders for life.
