NYT: Relatives of 9/11 Victims Disband Group
WASHINGTON, Jan. 11 (AP) - A group of relatives of victims of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, whose members pressed for passage of a law to overhaul the government's intelligence apparatus, said Tuesday that it was disbanding.

The group, the Family Steering Committee for the 9/11 Commission, said it was breaking up now that the law had been enacted. Some members will continue to push lawmakers for further changes, it said.

"It didn't make a lot of sense to just keep it hanging there," said Carie Lemack of Boston, whose mother died aboard American Airlines Flight 11. "It's hard, and I think some people are probably more upset than others, but I think we're all still working toward the same goal of making the country safer."

The 12-member group, formed nearly three years ago, pressed for the creation of an independent commission to investigate intelligence failures before the 2001 attacks.
