                                 A BILL


 
To establish within the National Park Service the 225th Anniversary of 
 the American Revolution Commemorative Program, 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 ``225th Anniversary of the American 
Revolution Commemoration Act''.

SEC. 2. FINDINGS AND PURPOSES.

    (a) Findings.--Congress finds that--
            (1) the American Revolution, inspired by the spirit of 
        liberty and independence among the inhabitants of the original 
        13 English colonies, was an event of global significance having 
        a profound and lasting effect on the government, laws, culture, 
        society, and values of the United States;
            (2) the years 2000 through 2008 mark the 225th anniversary 
        of the American Revolution;
            (3) citizens of the United States should have an 
        opportunity to understand and appreciate the continuing legacy 
        of the American Revolution;
            (4) the 225th anniversary of the American Revolution 
        provides an opportunity to enhance public awareness and 
        understanding of the impact of the American Revolution on the 
        lives of citizens of the United States;
            (5) although the National Park Service administers 
        battlefields, historical parks, historic sites, and programs 
        that address elements of the story of the American Revolution, 
        there is a need to establish partnerships that link those sites 
        and programs with sites and programs of other Federal and non-
        Federal entities to place the story of the American Revolution 
        in the broad context of the causes, consequences, and 
        significance of the American Revolution; and
            (6) a national program of the National Park Service that 
        links historic structures and sites, routes, activities, 
        community projects, exhibits, and multimedia materials in a 
        manner that is unified and flexible is the best method of 
        conveying to citizens of the United States the story and 
        significance of the American Revolution.
    (b) Purposes.--The purposes of this Act are--
            (1) to recognize the enduring importance of the American 
        Revolution to the lives of citizens of the United States; and
            (2) to authorize the National Park Service to coordinate, 
        connect, and facilitate Federal and non-Federal activities to 
        commemorate, honor, and interpret the history of the American 
        Revolution, including the significance and relevance of the 
        American Revolution to the shape and spirit of the Government 
        and society of the United States.
