Amidst the budget bickering, the U.S. Senate came together today to unanimously pass a resolution condemning the violent terrorist attacks in Norway.
Sen. Amy Klobuchar and four other senators sponsored the resolution that “denounced the acts of terror and expressed deep sympathy and unwavering support for the Norwegian people as they recover from the tragedy.”
Minnesota has the largest number of people of Norwegian heritage outside of Norway, Klobuchar said.
The other four Senator sponsors were:
- Richard Durbin (D-IL)
- Richard Lugar (R-IN)
- John Hoeven (R-ND)
- Jon Kyl (R-AZ).
The other 95 senators signed on as co-sponsors.
A Norwegian terrorist bombed an Oslo government building and then shot scores of children at an island camp on July 22.
