FORT HOOD, Texas – Texas politicians are proposing a bill that would honor the victims of the deadly Ft. Hood shooting rampage.

The proposed legislation would retroactively grant federal support and benefits for the victims and families who have yet to receive any aid because the attack was designated as “workplace violence”.

The act would also award Purple Hearts to the wounded.
