HR 1700 Update

June 25th, 2009

NWHM staff is busy calling all of the House offices to remind them about HR 1700, the National Women’s History Museum Act. We currently have 28 cosponsors—so this outreach is making an impact!

We are still waiting for Senators Maria Cantwell (WA), Dianne Feinstein (CA), and Lisa Murkowski (AK) to sign on to the Senate companion bill before it is reintroduced. Please continue writing letters to them, as well as to your other representatives, from our website.
