Lawmakers introduce act to make 9/11 a federal holiday
There are new calls to make Sept. 11 a federal holiday.
Three Hudson Valley congressmen, from both sides of the aisle, have introduced the September 11th Day of Remembrance Act.
Rep. Mike Lawler (R) says he wants to make 9/11 a federal holiday to ensure we never forget the day's impact and consequences.
Rep. Pat Ryan says he was in his second year at West Point that day when all cadets swore to never forget the heroes lost.
And Rep. Anthony D'Esposito (R) says he served as an NYPD detective in the years after 9/11 and continues to see the long term ramifications on first responders and survivors.
