Never forget

    Del. Sen. Chris Coons is feeling victorious today after the first bill he cosponsored was passed by the U.S. Senate.

    The James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act of 2009 will provide funding for responders and survivors of the Sept. 11 attacks to receive medical monitoring and treatment related to toxin exposure from Ground Zero.

    The bill will assist all first responders, including 61 from Delaware.
