Washington – (RealEstateRama) — Monday, the House of Representatives passed Congressman Mike Conaway’s H.R. 3008, the George W. Bush Childhood Home Study Act. This legislation, which passed 382-4-2, aims to preserve the Midland home of the Bush family as a national landmark.
“George W. Bush’s childhood home in Midland, Texas is a piece of our nation’s history,” said Rep. Conaway. “Two Presidents, two governors, and a first lady have called this house their home. As the nation mourns the passing of George Herbert Walker Bush, our 41st President, we are especially reminded of the importance of preserving living landmarks for future generations.
“Currently open to the public as a museum, my legislation will work to protect the home as a national historic landmark. I’m grateful for the outpouring of support this bill received, which will ensure that all Americans have the opportunity to be inspired by the lives of the Bush family.”
