Remembering September 11th, 2001

Posted on September 14, 2022

Sunday marked the 21st Anniversary of the day that changed America forever, 9-11-01. It started off as a clear Tuesday morning when terror took to the skies and nearly 3,000 Americans lost their lives.

This proposal contains three main pieces, which would be an adjustment to the budget itself, the implementer, and bonding.
