Cuomo And Christie Request Assistance From Nat’l Park Service For 9/11 Memorial

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) penned a joint letter Saturday to Interior Secretary Ken Salazar requesting the National Park Service to provide financial and technical assistance to the National September 11th Memorial & Museum in New York City.

The letter reads:

The Memorial and Museum commemorate an event of national and international significance. As such, we believe it is important for the National Parks Service to play a greater role in assisting the Museum and Memorial with financial and management support.

Construction on the museum has been delayed over the last several months due to a financial dispute between the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey and the Sept. 11 Memorial and Museum Foundation
