                   SEPTEMBER 5, 2017.-Committed to the Committee of the Whole House on the State
                                    of the Union and ordered to be printed

                    Mr. BISHOP of Utah, from the Committee on Natural Resources,
                                       submitted the following


                                        [To accompany H.R. 2611]

                            [Including cost estimate of the Congressional Budget Office]
                     The Committee on Natural Resources, to whom was referred the
                   bill (H.R. 2611) to modify the boundary of the Little Rock Central
                   High School National Historic Site, and for other purposes, having
                   considered the same, report favorably thereon without amendment
                   and recommend that the bill do pass.
                                        PURPOSE OF THE BILL
                     The purpose of H.R. 2611 is to modify the boundary of the Little
                   Rock Central High School National Historic Site.
                               BACKGROUND AND NEED FOR LEGISLATION
                     In a key event of the American Civil Rights movement, nine
                   black students enrolled at formerly all-white Central High School
                   in Little Rock, Arkansas, in September 1957, testing the landmark
                   1954 U.S. Supreme Court decision in Brown v. Board of Education
                   of Topeka (347 U.S. 483) that declared segregation in public schools
                   unconstitutional. The admission of the Little Rock Nine, as they
                   came to be known, drew national and international attention, and
                   was the first important test of our Nation's resolve to enforce black
                   civil rights in the face of significant public defiance.
                     In recognition of the importance of Little Rock Central High
                   School in the history of the United States, the site was designated
                   by the Secretary of the Interior as a National Historic Landmark
                   in 1982, and was later designated as a national historic site in
                   1998 by Public Law 105-356.
