Family Members Press Congressman for United Flight 93 Memorial

APRIL 26, 2006 -- The bravery aboard United Flight 93 is about to be portrayed on the big screen.  Now, family members are pressing a North Carolina congressman to help fund a memorial.

In the past, Representative Charles Taylor has blocked millions of dollars for a memorial where the plane went down in Pennsylvania. Taylor is chairman of the House Appropriations Subcommittee.

Family members are urging people to sign a letter to their congressman asking for Taylor to lift the ban. Taylor says he's blocked the project because of it's size and cost.
