On Wednesday, the House passed the Senate amended version of H.R. 886, the United States Marshals Service 225th Anniversary Commemorative Coin Act. The bill will now go to the President's desk for his signature.
The proceeds from the sale of these coins will assist in the preservation and maintenance of artifacts and documents which will be displayed in the U.S. Marshals Museum. Additional proceeds will go to the Federal Law Enforcement Officers Association, the National Law Enforcement Museum, and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.
Congressman Steve Womack, the sponsor of H.R. 886, released the below statement regarding its passage
"Today marked the end of a long road for the City of Fort Smith and the U.S. Marshals Museum. With its passage, this coin will forever serve as a symbol and constant reminder of the character and tradition of one of America's greatest institutions.
"I thank my colleague Rep. Mike Ross for his help in the House as well as Senators Boozman and Pryor for their efforts in the Senate.
"Today, we celebrate, with the City of Fort Smith, the opportunity to honor and pay tribute to the U.S Marshals Service."
