Maloney Commemorates Anniversary of the September 11th Attack

Newburgh, NY – Today, Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney (NY-18) released the following statement observing the 19th anniversary of the September 11th terror attacks:

“Today, we come together to mourn with those who lost family and loved ones in the September 11th terror attacks, and to honor the unbreakable spirit of New Yorkers and the formidable strength of the United States of America.

“After this dark day, 19 years ago, we unified our differences, and together we stood strong as a beacon of light against hatred and brutality. Today, as we continue to face threats abroad and at home – to freedom, justice, equality and opportunity – we must reignite that unity and stand together for a more perfect future,” said Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney.

Rep. Maloney was a proud original co-sponsor of the Never Forget the Heroes: James Zadroga, Ray Pfeifer, and Luis Alvarez Permanent Authorization of the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund Act, which passed both chambers of Congress and was signed into law in 2019. The bill extends the 9/11 Victims Compensation Fund (VCF) for 9/11 responders, survivors and their families until 2092, and covers the existing gaps in the fund that could have potentially caused thousands of impacted people to lose up to 70% of their VCF benefits.

This morning, Rep. Maloney joined community leaders and constituents at Dutchess County’s memorial service outside of the Dutchess County Family Court building. Later today, he will attend the remembrance ceremony at the Orange County Arboretum in Montgomery.

Rep. Maloney serves on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI), commonly known as the Intelligence Committee. He is the only Democratic New Yorker on the committee and is working every day to ensure New York is safe from future physical and cyber threats.
