When was the NWHM founded?
New National Women’s History Museum Legislation Introduced
Legislation has been introduced in the U. S. House of Representatives and the U. S. Senate that would provide a permanent home on or close to the National Mall in Washington, DC – the place that shows what our nation honors. Legislation (H.R. 863 and S. 398) is pending that would create a commission to make a recommendation for a site – hopefully on the National Mall – and would explore how the Museum would be funded. The Commission will be underwritten with private monies.
Bills have passed the House on a voice vote and twice in the Senate on unanimous consent but never in the same Congress. We have high hopes that Members of Congress will honor their own mothers and daughters by passing this legislation this Congress.
