Statement of Administration Policy: H.R. 5683 - Acquisition of Mt. Soledad Veterans Memorial

July 19, 2006

STATEMENT OF ADMINISTRATION POLICY

(House)

(Rep. Hunter (R) CA and two cosponsors)

The Administration strongly supports passage of H.R. 5683 to protect the Mount Soledad Veterans Memorial in San Diego. In the face of legal action threatening the continued existence of the current Memorial, the people of San Diego have clearly expressed their desire to keep the Mt. Soledad Veterans Memorial in its present form. Judicial activism should not stand in the way of the people, and the Administration commends Rep. Hunter for his efforts in introducing this bill. The bill would preserve the Mount Soledad Memorial by vesting title to the Memorial in the Federal government and providing that it be administered by the Secretary of Defense. The Administration supports the important goal of preserving the integrity of war memorials.
