Stewart, first responders vow to keep pressure on McConnell
"Passing this in the Senate in two weeks -- and we're going to hold (Senate Majority Leader Mitch) McConnell to his word -- will be a chance to exhale. But it doesn't fix the grief and the suffering that [9/11 first responders] will continue to experience going forward," Stewart told CNN's Alex Marquardt. In June, Stewart accompanied a group of first responders and delivered an emotional plea to lawmakers about reauthorizing the fund. McConnell met with first responders, including Feal, at the end of last month, after which Feal told reporters that the Kentucky Republican had committed to holding a vote to extend the fund. "We're going to make sure that Mitch McConnell sticks to his word, and over the next week or two we're going to keep the pressure on the Senate," Feal said.
