Families of those who died aboard United Airlines Flight 93 asked lawmakers and Obama administration officials on Wednesday to set aside federal money to complete a 9/11 memorial at the crash site in Pennsylvania.
The dedication of the first phase of the $62 million Flight 93 National Memorial was held in September. The memorial will honor the 40 passengers and crew members who died when the airliner crashed in a field near Shanksville on Sept. 11, 2001. Passengers fought terrorists for control of the hijacked plane that was targeting Washington, D.C.
The meetings began Wednesday and will continue for the next few days. Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar is among the government officials that the group is expected to meet with.
