Bill to establish Pulse Nightclub as a national memorial passes U.S. House

The U.S. House of Representatives has unanimously passed a resolution that would designate the Pulse Nightclub as a National Memorial Site.

H.R. 3094 grants a federal designation honoring the 49 lives taken on June 12, 2016, as well as the survivors, first responders, and the entire Central Florida community.

“Four years ago, we saw the atrocious and destructive nature of hatred plague our Orlando community when 49 lives were taken and 53 others were injured. As we continue to honor the memory of those lost, I am proud to lead the fight with Congresswomen Val Demings and Stephanie Murphy to designate the National Pulse Memorial,” said Rep. Darren Soto, D-Kissimmee, who introduced the legislation last year.

  1. And sadly, I don’t think it will see the light of day in the Senate. Maybe my pessimism will prove to be misplaced, McConnell is where many bills go to die.
