IN THE SENATE OF THE UNITED STATES
January 17, 2017
Mr. Moran (for himself and Mr. Roberts) introduced the following bill; which was read twice and referred to the Committee on Energy and Natural Resources
To designate a National Memorial to Fallen Educators at the National Teachers Hall of Fame in Emporia, Kansas.
This Act may be cited as the
National Memorial to Fallen Educators Act.
Congress finds that—
from 1764 to the date of enactment of this Act, more than 119 educators from 36 States have lost their lives in the United States while performing professional duties;
the United States lacks a national memorial dedicated to fallen educators; and
a memorial to fallen educators at the National Teachers Hall of Fame in Emporia, Kansas—
was dedicated on June 12, 2014; and
will honor educators who have lost their lives in the line of professional service.
The memorial to fallen educators located at the National Teachers Hall of Fame in Emporia, Kansas, is designated as the
National Memorial to Fallen Educators.
Effect of Designation
The national memorial designated by this section is not a unit of the National Park System and the designation of the National Memorial to Fallen Educators shall not require or permit Federal funds to be expended for any purpose related to that national memorial.
