January 8th Memorial moves ahead without state funding (KGUN9.com)

TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) – The January 8th shooting touched lives far beyond the six killed and 13 wounded that day. State lawmakers refused to devote two and a half million dollars to build the memorial but organizers see a way to keep going. Organizers are reaching out for more donations to keep the memorial alive. There’s a lot of history in Tucson’s old courthouse plaza. There are plans to put a memorial to the January 8th shooting victims there to join the history in that spot. State lawmakers decided not to kick in funding to help make that memorial happen. But organizers are confident it will happen just the same.
