    Cornyn, Carter, Williams Unveil New Bill to Support Victims of Fort Hood Shooting

    KILLEEN– Today U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX), Congressman John R. Carter (R-TX 31) and Congressman Roger Williams (R-TX 25) announced new legislation, the Honoring the Fort Hood Heroes Act, to be introduced in both Houses of Congress that would honor and support the victims of the Nov. 5, 2009 Fort Hood shooting.

    “Justice was served when Nidal Hasan was found guilty and handed the death penalty. But justice has not been served for the victims of this horrific shooting. This legislation will ensure the victims of this obvious act of terrorism receive the benefits they not only need, but justly deserve,” Congressman Carter said. "We cannot continue allowing the Obama Administration to turn its back on these men and women by failing to admit this was indeed a terrorist attack on American soil. If the administration had properly labeled and managed the Fort Hood shooting from the beginning, this legislation would not be required. I will not stop the fight for the victims and I know my colleagues, Senator Cornyn and Rep. Williams, will seek every avenue to ensure justice is served for these victims.”

    Cornyn said they wanted to wait until the trial was completed, but now that justice has been given to Hasan, it is time to give it to families.

    “We are righting a wrong.”

    The benefits will be the same given to victims of the battlefield as well as the same given to victims of the September 11 th, 2001 attack on the World Trade Center.

    “The benefits can be shared, the medals can be awarded, and we can give these battlefield warriors they recognition they deserve,” said Carter who told media members the proposed bill has support on both sides of the aisle in Washington.

    Lawmakers introduce bill to reclassify 2009 shooting as terrorism


    Alongside family members of Fort Hood shooting victims, three Texas lawmakers Monday announced federal legislation that would alleviate financial and physical burdens suffered in the nearly four years since the worst attack on a military base in U.S. history.

    At a Killeen Civic and Conference Center news conference, U.S. Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, and U.S. Reps. Roger Williams, R-Austin, and John Carter, R-Round Rock, expressed confidence the “Honoring the Fort Hood Heroes Act” would garner enough bipartisan support to pass both houses of Congress.
