9/11 Family Members and Technical Experts Call on Congress to Launch New World Trade Center Investigation
Washington, D.C. – On the 16th anniversary of the September 11th attacks, 9/11 family member Bob McIlvaine and architect Richard Gage, AIA, will announce the Bobby McIlvaine World Trade Center Investigation Act at a news conference to be held at the National Press Club at 1 p.m. EDT.
The Bobby McIlvaine Act is draft legislation that would empanel a select committee in either chamber of Congress to reinvestigate the destruction of the three World Trade Center towers on September 11, 2001. The act is named after Mr. McIlvaine’s son Bobby, who was tragically killed at the age of 26 while entering the North Tower of the World Trade Center.

The University of Alaska Fairbanks will host a public presentation on an ongoing study into the collapse of World Trade Center Building 7 at 4 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 6, in Schaible Auditorium.
UAF researcher Leroy Hulsey is leading the study. He will present the findings outlined in his team’s September 2017 progress report, which will be released the same day. A draft report of the two-year study will be issued later this fall, followed by a six-week public comment period, with a final report scheduled for release in early 2018. Hulsey’s study is being funded by the nonprofit organization Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth.
WTC 7 was a 47-story office building that fell nearly seven hours after the collapse of the World Trade Center’s Twin Towers on Sept 11, 2001. In a 2008 report, the U.S. Department of Commerce’s National Institute of Standards and Technology attributed the collapse to office fires in the lower stories of the building.
The presentation is open to the public and will be streamed live at https://media.uaf.edu.
