NEW YORK – New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (KWOH’-moh) and former New York city Mayor Michael Bloomberg has announced plans for a permanent commitment to the Sept. 11 Memorial that would recognize rescue and recovery workers at ground zero.
They announced the plans Tuesday with the former “Daily Show” host Jon Stewart, an old Sept. 11 health of the lawyer, and the National September 11 Memorial and Museum of the board.
Bloomberg Philanthropies will provide support for a commitment that will be located on the Memorial Glade, a grassy clearing on the southwest corner of the 8-acre plaza.
Bloomberg is the museum of the chairman. He says that the people who are involved in the recovery “deserves a fitting tribute for their courage, sacrifice and courage.”
The bet will look at the impact of 9/11 on the health of workers and others.
