WASHINGTON, Sept. 27 (UPI) -- The U.S. Senate is expected to vote Wednesday to override President Barrack Obama's veto of legislation that give relatives or survivors of the 9/11 terror attacks the ability to sue Saudi Arabia.
The president sent a three-page letter explaining his position to Congress along with his veto. One of the arguments President Obama made was that the bill could create situations where people in other countries could file lawsuits against the United States.
The measure is expected to succeed, but still needs two-thirds of the Senate to vote for it. The House of Representatives will get its own vote later in the week.
The vote will likely be the first veto override of President Obama's eight-year presidency.
