                     The Committee  on Natural Resources, to whom was  referred the

                   sidered the same, report favorably thereon without amendment and
                   recommend  that the bill do pass.
                                        PURPOSE  OF THE BILL
                     The purpose of H.R. 1949 is to provide for the consideration and
                   submission of site and design proposals for the National Liberty
                   Memorial  approved for establishment in the District of Columbia.
                               BACKGROUND   AND NEED  FOR LEGISLATION
                     H.R. 1949  amends  the Military Construction Authorization Act
                   for Fiscal Year 2013 with respect to the submission of site and de-
                   sign proposals by the National Mall Liberty Fund D.C. for the Na-
                   tional Liberty Memorial to honor the slaves and free black persons
                   who  served as soldiers and sailors or provided civilian assistance
                   during the  American  Revolution. The site and  design approval
                   process is revised to make the Secretary of Agriculture, rather than
                   the Secretary of the Interior or the Administrator of General Serv-
                   ices, responsible for consideration of these site and design proposals
                   and their submission, on behalf of the sponsor, to the Commission
                   of Fine Arts and National Capital Planning Commission.
