Reid: Cloture vote on 9/11 health benefits coming Monday

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) said he will try to end debate Monday on a bill providing healthcare benefits and compensation to sick Ground Zero workers.

Reid said he will file cloture on the motion to proceed with the James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act, which will provide $7.4 billion over the next 10 years to first responders to the site of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks in New York City.

The Senate would need just one Republican to vote for cloture to bring the bill to a final vote.
