House 9/11 resolution approved in voice vote

The House on Friday morning approved a resolution by voice vote marking the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks against the United States.

The resolution, H.Res. 391, commits the House to continue fighting terrorism and offer whatever resources are needed in that fight.

The resolution reasserts the House's commitment to "opposing violent extremism arrayed against American interests and to providing the United States military, intelligence and law enforcement communities with the resources and support to do so effectively and safely."

The resolution was approved after House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) asked for, and received, unanimous consent that it be discharged from various committees that had jurisdiction over the measure.
