Here's an update on The Women's History and Nineteenth Amendment Centennial Quarter Dollar Coin Program Act.
HR. 1923, is a bill
authorizing the Department of the Treasury to mint and issue a series of quarter-dollar coins. These are real quarters, which would be released over several years like the popular state quarters of a few years ago. One side will commemorate the ratification of the Nineteenth Amendment, which happened in 1920. On the reverse of each coin, the accomplishments and contributions of one prominent woman (must be deceased) who was a resident of each state, the District of Columbia, or a U.S. territory will be featured.
Now co-sponsored by 140 Representatives, it should be moving out of the House Financial Services Committee for a vote on the floor in late November or early December.
In August, Senators Catherine Cortez Masto (D) and Deb Fischer (R) introduced a companion bill (exactly the same bill with the same verbiage) in the Senate. It is
, the Women's History and Nineteenth Amendment Centennial Quarter Dollar Coin Program Act.
Please contact your Senators, Congressmen and Congresswomen asking them to sponsor these important bipartisan bills. Please call or copy and paste this information in an email to all of your friends and relatives throughout the nation and ask them to contact their Representatives to co-sponsor these Bills. How wonderful would it be to have these "women" coins in circulation along with the Harriett Tubman twenty dollar bill.
