WASHINGTON (AP) — Lawmakers are introducing new legislation in Congress to create a national Latino American history museum.
Two years ago, a presidential commission called for the creation of a Smithsonian American Latino Museum. But the effort has stalled in Congress.
The group, Friends of the American Latino Museum, has been raising money for an advocacy effort to urge Congress to authorize such a museum. A similar bill gained support last year in the Senate but stalled in the House.
Actress Eva Longoria has been a leading proponent of the museum effort, along with producer Emilio Estefan.
In 1994, a Smithsonian report entitled “Willful Neglect” found Hispanics were the only major contributor to American civilization not permanently recognized at the museum complex.
