Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said Tuesday that the Senate will take up an expected veto override of legislation that lets families of 9/11 victims sue Saudi Arabia in U.S. courts before breaking for the elections.“Both of those we’ll have to deal with before we depart,” McConnell told reporters.
He was referring to the veto override and a separate push to block a proposed arms sale to Saudi Arabia.
The Senate is scheduled to be in session through early October, but lawmakers were hoping to leave town as soon as this week until after the election.
McConnell said Tuesday that it’s “safe to say” the Senate will be in session next week.
Do you believe it or will we see a Boehner. A last minute give away as usual. I believe it was 17 Oaks who pointed out that members of the families of 9-11 were given millions already.
