WASHINGTON, D.C. -- The U.S. House will be voting on a bill later today, July 12, that would cover the healthcare costs for first responders of the September 11th, 2001 terrorist attacks.

This bill came into the public eye last month after emotional testimony in front of a congressional committee from comedian Jon Stewart. Stewart referenced the fact that many members of the committee missed the testimony. That includes North Dakota's congressman Kelly Armstrong. Armstrong said he was there for the first hour, but stepped out due to a scheduling conflict.

WASHINGTON – The North Dakota Congressional delegation introduced legislation today to change the name of “Sullys Hill,” a National Game Preserve administered by U.S. Fish and Wildlife (FWS) within the Spirit Lake Indian Reservation, to “White Horse Hill,” its traditional Dakota name.

The federal government named this preserve in 1931 after General Alfred Sully, who killed hundreds of Native Americans, including ancestors of the Spirit Lake Nation. Because the name change came through an act of Congress, it takes another act of Congress to restore its rightful name.
