House passes coin plan to fund disabled veterans memorial


Recommended Posts

WASHINGTON - The House on Tuesday approved a plan to mint commemorative coins to help fund construction of the first-ever disabled veterans memorial in the nation's capital.


The bill, co-sponsored by Reps. Dennis Moore, R-Kan., and Mark Kirk, R-Ill., would direct the U.S. Treasury to produce 350,000 silver dollar coins to honor the estimated 3 million U.S. veterans permanently disabled while serving in the armed forces.


A special surcharge on the coins would go toward the fund to build the memorial on an impressive 2-acre site near the National Mall, just steps from the Capitol.
