Saudi Arabia Liability Debated In Washington D.C.

The House and Senate are on a collision course as they work on separate funding measures to pay for the Obama administration’s efforts against the Zika virus at vastly different levels. On the one hand, the Senate on Tuesday approved upwards of $1 billion.

But the House of Representatives is working on its own package that would only provide a fraction of that. Then there is that 9/11 lawsuit issue. A bill that would let the families of those killed in the Sept. 11 attacks sue Saudi Arabia for any role in the terror plot passed the Senate unanimously on Tuesday, bringing Congress closer to a showdown with the White House, which has threatened to veto the legislation.
