Two days before the 15th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, Congress has set up a showdown with President Obama over potential lawsuits against Saudi Arabia.

FOX's Jared Halpern has more from Capitol Hill:

The Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act applies to any foreign government suspected of helping in a terror attack on U.S. soil, but the immediate consequence is families of 9/11 victims could sue Saudi Arabia in U.S. courts:

"The bill is passed and without objection the motion to reconsider is laid on the table."

Some of those family members applauding as the voice vote was announced, four months after the Senate unanimously approved the measure.

Still, there is strong opposition from the White House. The Obama administration has repeatedly said the President won't sign the bill, citing concerns it could backfire and put Americans overseas at legal risk.
