WASHINGTON, DC - Tuesday marked another somber anniversary here in Western New York - four years since the crash of Flight 3407 in Clarence Center.

Still, families find themselves fighting for air safety regulations to actually be put in place by the federal government.

About 50 family members of the victims are in Washington, D.C. Many of them say that the FAA has failed to act in making flying more safe like the agency is supposed to do.

The lawmakers are hosting the families of the Flight 3407 crash victims to commemorate the anniversary. They will also push the federal government, particularly the Federal Aviation Administration, to move forward with two critical flight safety regulations that the families and New York delegation fought hard to pass as part of the Airline Safety Act.

The familes held two vigils to mark the Anniversary.  One took place in Washington, DC at 5:50pm, the other in Clarence Center at the scene of the crash at 10pm.
