WASHINGTON, D.C., November 17, 2011 -

Reporting H.R. 1545 Out of Committee (Agreed to by Unanimous Consent.)
This bill establishes the Waco Mammoth National Monument in Texas as a unit of the National Park System and requires the Secretary of the Interior, in consultation with Baylor University and the city of Waco, to complete a general management plan for the Monument. This designation is unique because it will be locally driven and operated without federal funds.
