Dear 9/11 Family Members, Friends, and Supporters,
Legislation based on the 9/11 Commission recommendations has passed both the House
and the Senate.
When the President signs this landmark legislation, it will become law
and our country will have taken a major step toward becoming more secure.
To each of you who stood with us and took action
Many of you helped by contacting the White House and other elected officials.
Every fax, call, and email was important.
Some of you were able to attend the Commission hearings in Washington or New York.
And some of you came to the vigils in New York, Boston, Washington, Sherman Oaks
or Buffalo. Many of you responded by signing the petition asking for a floor vote on the bill.
Every time you took action, it was noticed.
Your activism helped hammer home the message that America wants the problems that led to 9/11 fixed.
We could not have done it without you! We thank you with all our hearts.
The Family Steering Committee for the 9/11 Commission
