Ryan introduced the bill on Monday, and it has since been referred to the House Oversight Committee. Oak Creek is in Ryan's district.
The bill states the House "condemns the senseless attack" and " remains hopeful, as additional details regarding the attack are gathered, that the citizens of this country will come together, united in a shared desire for peace and justice while standing with the Sikh community to grieve the loss of life." The bill also recognizes first responders, law enforcement officers and members of the Sikh community who "selflessly sought to aid and protect others above their own safety."
On Aug. 5, a gunman entered a Sikh temple in Oak Creek, Wisc., and opened fire, leaving six people dead.
