BREAKING NEWS: Passage of #S133: #WW2 Merchant Mariners Congressional Gold Medal Act is imminent. As of this morning, the tally of cosponsors reached 68, which exceeds the prerequisite number. It is now only a matter of time. Thank you to all who have contributed to seeing this bill pass!
(In September, companion bill #HR550 passed the U.S. House of Representatives. Once a hearing is scheduled for S. 133 and it passes the Senate, the Congressional Gold Medal bill will get sent to the President of the United States for final approval and signature.)
