Congress Holds Session in New York City
PND Connections - Congress Holds Session in New York City
The Annenberg Foundation in St. Davids, Pennsylvania, has donated $1 million to help cover the expenses of today's special session of Congress in New York City. The session, which originally was proposed by Rep. Charles Rangel (D-NY), is intended to commemorate the one-year anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attacks, show support for the city, and demonstrate the nation's resolve in the war against terrorism. The session will be held in the Neoclassical-style Federal Hall, a national historic monument at 26 Wall Street that was also the 18th-century site of New York's City Hall, where the the first session of Congress met and George Washington was inaugurated as president on April 30, 1789.
