Chairman Hastings Letter to General Services Administration Acting Administrator Tangherlini Seeking Documents on the Eisenhower Memorial Gehry Design


WASHINGTON, D.C., May 17, 2013 - Dear Mr. Tangherlini:

The Eisenhower Memorial Commission ("Commission") was created in 1999 and charged with "memorializing Dwight D. Eisenhower as the Supreme Commander of the Allied Forces in Europe in World War II and as the 34th President of the United States."

While there is significant cost associated with the design and construction of a presidential memorial, these costs should be managed effectively and efficiently. According to its Fiscal Year 2014 Budget Request, the Commission has already received more than $63 million for the design of the Memorial and operation of the Commission itself, and has asked for an additional $51 million dollars to be appropriated in FY 20142.
