Call to Action to Amend 42 USC 10609

The United States Victims of State Spondered Terrorism Fund created by 42 USC 10609 allows victims of terrorists attacks to submit judgments they have won against countries declared as state sponsors of terrorism for partial satisfaction .   Unfortunately the legislation has a flaw deeming the widows and children of 9/11 eligible but will not allow them to collect.   Please support the removal of the "controlling" clause that has barred these victims and their families.   The families are not requesting anything more than to be able to participate just as equally as any other victim of terrorism.  I lost my father on September 11th and I feel as if the pain and suffering of the horrific attacks on September 11th is being discounted and victims pitted against each other.  All I want is equality for all victims of terrorism!
