Good Afternoon, I'm Kimberly McBroom.
As the war on terrorism continues, the focus today in Washington is on dollars and cents.
The terrorist attacks have severely impacted the nation's economy.
Now, President Bush is looking for legislation to fix that.
At the same time, he's continuing to take aim at the money that funds terrorism.
Financial ties to Osama bin Laden were found in four U-S states.
The names of dozens of people and organizations have been added to a list of suspected terrorist associates.
They were targeted by President Bush last month in an executive order.
Aleen Sirgany joins us now with the latest from Washington.
