6/16/1994--Introduced. Expresses the sense of the Congress that: (1) the Department of the Interior, the Department of Transportation, the Environmental Protection Agency, and other executive agencies with relevant jurisdiction should evaluate the Walt Disney Company's proposed theme park, Disney's America, and ensure that it is in strict compliance with existing Federal environmental, transportation, and historic preservation statutes; (2) the congressional committees of jurisdiction should hold hearings to examine such aspects of the proposed theme park and the associated development of the surrounding area; (3) the historic Northern Piedmont area of Virginia should not be the site of a massive theme park and real estate project; and (4) the Walt Disney Company should seek another location for the park where its impact would not disturb areas of such great historical significance as the Northern Piedmont area of Virginia.
