Members of the 9/11 Commission met with administration officials on Friday to urge faster action on implementing the final 20% of the recommendations made by the commission in 2005. "I'm worried that 20% [of the recommendations] haven't been addressed," said former New Jersey Gov. Thomas Kean, a leader of the bipartisan panel. "I'm also worried that among the 80 percent, things aren't fully done." Among the issues singled out by Kean and his colleagues: more secure state IDs, better communication between first responders and better tracking to ensure that international visitors leave the U.S. on time.
