Congressional Gold Medal Authorized for Monuments Men
The president last week signed into law the Monuments Men Recognition Act of 2014 to award the Congressional Gold Medal to the men and women who fought to preserve cultural heritage during World War II.
Rep. Kay Granger (R-TX-12) and Senator Roy Blunt (R-MO) spearheaded the legislative effort along with other members of the House and Senate.
Congresswoman Kay Granger’s remarks on the House floor last month (video below) highlight the importance of the new law.
