(KCEN) -- Texas Senators John Cornyn and Ted Cruz introduce the Honoring the Fort Hood Heroes Act.
The bill will to reclassify the 2009 Fort Hood shooting rampage as an act of terror and provide more benefits for victims and their family.
Victims and relatives have complained that the U.S. Government wrongly categorized the attacks as workplace violence.
The bill would provide life insurance, tax breaks for death in a combat zone and other combat-related pay.
Last month, Nidal Hasan was sentenced to death for the attack on Fort Hood that left 13 people dead and dozens of others hurt.
