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.
