Chairman Hastings' Statement on House Vote on Manhattan Project National Historical Park Act

Press Release

Location: Washington, DC

H.R. 5987, a bill to establish the Manhattan Project National Historical Park, was brought to the House floor today under "suspension of House rules." This "suspension" process allows for an expedited and abbreviated process for considering and voting on bills. However, in order for a bill to pass under suspension, it has to receive two-thirds support rather than a simple majority. While the Manhattan Project National Historical Park Act did receive a bipartisan, majority vote of 237-180, it did not receive the two-thirds necessary to pass under suspension today.

"While it didn't receive the super-majority needed to be sent to the Senate today, a big bipartisan majority of the House voted to establish the Manhattan Project National Historical Park. We've shown there is support for this park and will be working towards the goal of enacting this into law before the end of this year," said Chairman Doc Hastings (WA-04).
