Floor Situation

On Tuesday, October 29, 2013, the House will consider H.R. 330, the Distinguished Flying Cross National Memorial Act, under a suspension of the rules.  The bill was introduced on May 17, 2013, by Rep. Ken Calvert (R-CA) and referred to the Committee on Natural Resources, which ordered the bill reported by unanimous consent.

Bill Summary

H.R. 330 designates a memorial at the March Field Air Museum in Riverside, California as the “Distinguished Flying Cross National Memorial”.  The memorial would not become a unit of the National Park System.  This legislation further specifies that the memorial’s designation “shall not be construed to require or permit Federal funds to be expended for any purpose related to the national memorial.”

Background

The Distinguished Flying Cross is a military decoration awarded “to any persons who, after April 6, 1917, [who] while serving in any capacity with the U.S. Armed Forces, distinguish themselves by heroism or extraordinary achievement while participating in aerial flight.”[1]  This memorial would be dedicated to recipients of the award.

Cost

CBO estimates that implementing H.R. 330 would have no effect on discretionary spending.  Enactment of this legislation would not affect revenues or direct spending.[1]
