WASHINGTON, D.C. - Families of the Flight 93 heroes gathered in Washington, D.C. to talk about the planned memorial in Somerset County.
They testified in front of a congressional subcommittee yesterday, requesting $3-million to cover the costs of water and sewage plans for the first phase of the project.
The federal government has already promised about $18.5-million for that part of the plan.
The national memorial will be built in Shanksville, where United Flight 93 crashed on Sept. 11, 2001.
Passengers on that plane fought terrorist hijackers to intentionally bring the airliner down before it struck an intended target, likely in the nation's capital.
