The House of Representatives is reportedly closer to passing a health care bill for September 11th first responders.
According to the Daily News, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi decided to bring the $10.5 billion measure up for a vote after figuring out a way to pay for it without adding to the nation's deficit.
The paper says the new plan would raise nearly $8 billion by closing loopholes that let subsidiaries of foreign companies write off much of their taxes.
The vote would be the closest Congress has ever come to compensating first responders who say they got sick working in the aftermath of the World Trade Center attacks.
A vote is expected by the end of the month. If passed, it would head to the U.S. Senate for approval.
