Senate to Mark Shooting With Resolution Wednesday

Senate Minority Whip Jon Kyl announced Tuesday that he and fellow Arizona Republican Sen. John McCain plan to introduce a resolution commemorating the shooting incident in Tucson earlier this month that killed six and nearly took the life of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.).

Kyl told reporters in brief, somber remarks after the weekly GOP caucus lunch that he expected the resolution to be discussed on the floor and receive a vote Wednesday.

“Regrettably the first order of business of the Senate tomorrow might be the consideration of a resolution which Sen. McCain and I intend to offer commemorating the victims of the shooting in Tucson, Ariz., on Jan. 8,” Kyl said. “We will present that and have some debate out that, hopefully vote on that, tomorrow.”
