Ros-Lehtinen Pleased To Co-Sponsor Bipartisan Legislation That Offers Federal Funds For Holocaust Studies In School

Washington, DC -Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, senior member of the Florida Congressional delegation, is pleased to co-sponsor bipartisan legislation that would offer federal funds to assist in Holocaust studies in school. The legislation "Simon Wiesenthal Holocaust Education Act" was introduced by Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney.

This legislation would allow federal funds in public schools to be used for the specific intent of Holocaust studies, with in-depth research into specific areas of studies.

Said Ros-Lehtinen, "I am pleased to co-sponsor this legislation because all of our students, in order to spread tolerance and civility, should study the dark blemish upon mankind which is the Holocaust. Education is so important and decisive to this endeavor."
