What is House Bill H.R. 1719?
Cost of House Bill H.R. 1719
"Contra Costa’s own John Muir, the Father of the National Park Service, believed ‘everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul.’ Expanding the site where he lived, wrote, and championed conservation efforts is a fitting celebration of his legacy, and will offer nature-goers greater access to enjoy the beauty of the East Bay."
The House Natural Resources Committee passed this bill without objection via unanimous consent. During the last Congress the House passed this legislation on a voice vote, but the bill died in the Senate.
