Federal Issue: Thomas Paine Memorial

H.R.6720, introduced by Reps Jamie Raskin, Md., and Victoria Spartz, Ind. 

This legislation, which passed Congress in the 2022 omnibus package, authorizes the Thomas Paine Memorial Association to establish a memorial to Paine in the District of Columbia. No public money can be used in the development, construction, or maintenance of the Memorial. The project received a unanimous endorsement by the National Capital Memorial Advisory Commission.
