NWHM is delighted to report that the House Administration Committee met to consider HR 863 this morning and all members voted in support of our bill’s passage! Committee Chair Candice Miller (R-MI), Ranking Member Robert Brady (D-PA), and Committee Members Phil Gingrey (R-GA) and Zoe Lofgren (D-CA) spoke in support of creating a commission to produce a feasible plan for a privately funded national women’s history museum.
The bill passed out of the Committee without amendments. This was the first step to getting the bill passed by the House of Representatives. Next the bill will be considered by the House Natural Resources Committee.
