Congressman Tom MacArthur today announced that his legislation to protect and preserve the 9/11 Memorial at the World Trade Center in New York has passed the U.S. House of Representatives with overwhelming bipartisan support.
The National 9/11 Memorial at the World Trade Center Act will designate the 9/11 outdoor Memorial Plaza as a National Memorial and authorize a competitive grant to help secure the memorial site and honor the victims of September 11th and the 1993 World Trade Center bombing.
NJFOP President Robert W. Fox says, “The memorial at Ground Zero in New York stands as a shining beacon of America’s resilience and spirit. This memorial deserves support and protection for generations to come. Thank you to Congressman MacArthur for working to do just that, with the National 9/11 Memorial at the World Trade Center Act.”
