Washington, May 9 (ANI): The 50 million dollar bounty on Al-qaeda leader Osama bin Laden's head should go to victims of the 9/11 attacks, two New York lawmakers have said.
US congressmen Anthony Weiner and Jerrold Nadler said they would draft legislation to give any unclaimed reward money to organizations that aid 9/11 first responders, families and survivors.
Ground Zero construction veteran and advocate John Feal said 9/11 rescuers still carried the scars of that day, and could use the funds.
"If it was up to me it would be called the 'No Responder Left Behind Act' because my attitude now is we will not leave anybody behind who's affected by 9/11," the Daily News quoted Feal, as saying.
The US State Department's Rewards for Justice program offered an initial 25 million dollar reward for Osama. The Airline Pilots Association and the Air Transport Association contributed 2 million dollar more, and Congress bumped the pot up to 50 million dollars in 2004. (ANI)
