A bill directing the U.S. Mint to issue 350,000 $1 silver commemorative coins in 2010 honoring disabled veterans was officially presented to President Bush yesterday, July 7.
H.R. 634 passed in the House and Senate last month and was cleared for the White House on June 18. With its official move yesterday, no more steps remain for H.R. 634 to become law other than the president’s ink.
The bill’s overwhelming support guarantees that will happen. It’s only a matter of time, and most likely within days.
