WASHINGTON (GaeaTimes.com) — Michael Bloomberg, mayor of New York joined fire and police officials and lawmakers on Monday posing an urge for the proposed health bills for emergency workers.
Bloomberg seemed pretty desperate about the bills, he understood the immense necessity of it, he said,
The time for excuses is over, The Senate has a full week ahead of it and should not adjourn until it passes this bill. The measure is paid for by other revenue generators, referencing a procurement fee on some foreign countries that trade with the United States, the continuation of a fee on some travelers to the United States and a fee on visas for some companies.
The bill is awaiting a decision still now. Previously the opposal came from the republican who thought the $7.4 billion tag was too high.
