                                 A BILL


 
To require the Secretary of the Interior to identify appropriate lands 
within the area designated as section 1 of the Mall in Washington, DC, 
as the location of a future memorial to former President Ronald Reagan, 
to identify a suitable location, to select a suitable design, to raise 
private-sector donations for such a memorial, to create a Commission to 
          assist in these activities, and for other purposes.

    Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the 
United States of America in Congress assembled,

SECTION 1. SHORT TITLE.

    This Act may be cited as the ``Ronald Reagan Memorial Act of 
2000''.

SEC. 2. FINDINGS.

    The Congress finds the following:
            (1) Ronald Reagan is an American hero deserving of 
        recognition by this and future generations of Americans and 
        visitors from around the world.
            (2) As President, Ronald Reagan initiated policies that won 
        the Cold War, protected and restored freedom and democracy 
        around the globe, lowered taxes on American citizens, tamed the 
        economic threats of inflation and economic stagnation, and 
        ushered in an unprecedented era of peace and prosperity across 
        the Nation, and his contributions merit permanent 
        memorialization.
            (3) The legacies of Ronald Reagan include restoring faith 
        in our system of democracy and capitalism, returning pride in 
        being an American, and renewing the honor and decency of the 
        American Presidency, and are deserving of national recognition.
            (4) The contributions of former President Ronald Reagan, 
        and his status as a preeminent twentieth-century American 
        statesman and one of the greatest American Presidents, merit 
        and require a permanent memorialization alongside the other 
        great American leaders memorialized on the Mall in the District 
        of Columbia.
