Sen. Bob Corker has agreed to let the families of 9/11 victims sue the government of Saudi Arabia, even though he says he continues to have grave concerns over where it might lead.

The measure lets Americans sue in domestic courts if they believe a foreign government was involved in a terrorist attack.

The vote marks the first override of an Obama veto.
