John Cornyn Announces Senate Passage Of Commemorative Coin For George H.W. & Barbara Bush

Another step has been taken towards issuing commemorative a $1 dollar coin honoring George H.W. and Barbara Bush.

That’s after the U.S. Senate passed a bill authored by John Cornyn.

Cornyn told WTAW News it took a two-thirds majority to pass Senate Bill 457, “but there was no question on a bi-partisan basis about getting this done for George Herbert Walker and Barbara Bush”.

Cornyn also issued the following statement: “President George H.W. Bush and his wife Barbara were shining examples of what it looks like to put your country first,” said Sen. Cornyn. “Memorializing their legacy with a coin will serve as a positive reminder of their love of service for generations to come.”

Similar legislation introduced by Texas congressman Roger Williams has been in a House committee since last February.

The coin would be designed once the bill is signed into law.
