Obama Expected to Veto 9/11 Bill Allowing Families of Victims to Sue Saudi Government

President Barack Obama is slated to veto a 9/11 bill on Friday that allows the families of 9/11 victims to sue the Saudi government. The bill was passed through the House of Representatives. Obama has until midnight on Friday night to submit his official veto to Congress.

The bill would allow the Saudi government to be sued for their involvement in the 9/11 attacks.

Opponents of the bill assert that allowing victims of the attacks to sue a foreign government would set a precedent that would start a massive set of lawsuits against the United States in retaliation.

The bill is called the “Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act.” The act was passed with an overwhelming majority and would allow immunity of foreign countries from lawsuits to be eliminated.

Obama vowed to veto the bill in the past, but the White House has not stated the exact time when the bill would be vetoed. Time is running out for the veto, as the 10-day window for the president to veto the bill ends at midnight tonight.

House Speaker Paul Ryan also stated that the potential for lawsuits against Americans stemming from the bill worried him. He asserts that the families of victims do need to have their voice heard, but stated there will be legal matters and lawyers trying to get rich as well as a worrisome precedence set.
