Smith Praises Passage of Federal Fairness for 9/11 Families Act

WASHINGTON, D.C. — On Friday, Congressman Chris Smith (NJ-4) praised the passage of the Fairness for 9/11 Families Act (HR 8987) by the House of Representatives that would provide financial relief to family members of victims killed in the September 11.

Smith called the legislation "long-overdue" step that would bring these families closers to justice.

“For two decades, I have worked with the ‘Jersey Girls’—four widows who tragically lost their husbands in the horrific attacks—to achieve justice for the victims, families, and first responders of 9/11,” said Smith. "It is due to their determination, their strength of spirit, and their persistence that this bill is before the House today."
