Bloomberg To Congress: 9/11 Victims Need More Help

(CBS/AP) WASHINGTON New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg asked Congress today to reopen the compensation fund for 9/11 terrorism victims, saying the city could otherwise lose billions of dollars to lawsuits.

Bloomberg says just because injuries and illnesses have been slower to emerge should not disqualify people from getting the help they need.
