The White House responded to Congress after they questioned the effects of the 9/11 bill.

According to a report from abcnews.com , officials said lawmakers are now having "buyer’s remorse".

Congressional representatives are now saying the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act needs to be fixed.

Congress voted to override President Obama’s veto of the bill that would allow families of 9-11 victims to sue Saudi Arabia for alleged involvement in the attacks.

This is the first time Congress voted to override a bill vetoed by the president.
