NEW YORK, N.Y. -- Governor Cuomo and New Jersey Governor Chris Christie think the National Park Service should get involved in the 9/11 Memorial and Museum.

The governors sent a letter to Interior Secretary Ken Salazar that said funding from the Park Service would provide financial stability to the World Trade Center site.

Construction of the memorial stalled last fall after a funding dispute with the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. This led to questions about the site's long-term fiscal health.

Park Service involvement in the project would require congressional approval.
