As former NYPD detective and 9/11 first responder, Luis Alvarez, will be laid to rest Wednesday, lawmakers and authorities remember his legacy and continue to fight for 9/11 victims' funding.

PIX11's Betty Nguyen sits down with Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney to find out the likelihood that the bill to provide aid to 9/11 first responders will pass.
