Officials say the bill would ensure treatment and coverage for illnesses cause by breathing in toxic dust at the World Trade Center site.

Nearly a dozen Long Island first responders will be in Washington for the vote including Nesconset?s John Feal.

The bill provides about $10 billion over 10 years. Feal hopes the bill passes the full Congress next month.
