U.S. Senate Democrats Introduce Pandemic Heroes Compensation Act
June 1, 2020
Modeled after the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund (VCF), the “Pandemic Heroes Compensation Act” fund would provide compensation for injuries to any individual, or their families, who are deemed an essential worker and required to leave their home to perform services and who have become ill or died as a result of COVID-19.
The legislation mirrors recent House legislation introduced by Reps. Carolyn B. Maloney (D-NY), Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) and Peter King (R-NY). Click here for the story.
