    (a) Findings.--Congress makes the following findings:
            (1) The United States has an enriched legacy of Hispanic 
        influence in politics, government, economic development, and 
        cultural expression.
            (2) The Palace of the Governors has been the center of 
        administrative and cultural activity over a vast region of the

        in Santa Fe by Governor Pedro de Peralta in 1610.
            (3) The Palace of the Governors is the oldest continuously 
        occupied public building in the United States and has been 
        occupied for 390 years.
            (4) Since its creation, the Museum of New Mexico has worked 
        to protect and promote Southwest, Hispanic, and Native American 
        arts and crafts.
            (5) The Palace of the Governors is the history division of 
        the Museum of New Mexico and was once proposed by Teddy 
        Roosevelt to be part of the Smithsonian Museum and known as the 
        ``Smithsonian West.''
            (6) The Museum has an extensive and priceless collection of 
        the following:
                    (A) Spanish Colonial and Iberian Colonial 
                paintings, including the Sagesser Hyde paintings on 
                buffalo hide dating back to 1706.
                    (B) Pre-Columbian Art.
                    (C) Historic artifacts including the following:

                        the first capital in the United States, San 
                        Juan de los Caballeros, in July of 1598.
                            (ii) The Vara Stick used to measure land 
                        grants and other real property boundaries in 
                        Dona Ana County, New Mexico.

                        Station clock that was shot, stopping the 
                        pendulum, freezing for all history the moment 
                        when Pancho Villa's raid began, which marks the 
                        beginning of the last invasion of the 
                        continental United States.
                            (iv) The field desk of Brigadier General

        Trust for Historic Preservation.
            (8) The facilities both for exhibiting and storage of this
