A BILL
To authorize the Great American Flag Association to establish a monument
in honor of the American Flag at Oxon Cove Park in the District of Columbia
where the largest American Flag in the world will be permanently displayed.
  Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United
  States of America in Congress assembled,
SECTION 1. ESTABLISHMENT AND DESIGN.
  (a) ESTABLISHMENT- The Great American Flag Association is authorized to
  establish a monument, consisting of a display area, museum, and exhibit
  hall, on the Federal property known as Oxon Cove Park in the District of
  Columbia, to display and honor the largest American Flag in the world.
  (b) DESIGN- The Great American Flag Association shall be responsible for
  the preparation of the design and plans for the monument. Such design and
  plans shall be subject to the approval of the Secretary of the Interior,
  the Commission of Fine Arts, and the National Capital Planning Commission. If
  the Secretary of the Interior, the Commission of Fine Arts, or the National
  Capital Planning Commission fails to approve but does not specifically
  object to such design and plans within 90 days after their submission,
  the approval of the Secretary, the Commission of Fine Arts, or the National
  Capital Planning Commission, as the case may be, shall be deemed to be given.
SEC. 2. CONSTRUCTION.
  In consultation with the Great American Flag Association, the Secretary
  of the Interior shall, with the approval of the Commission of Fine Arts
  and the National Capital Planning Commission, select a suitable site of
  approximately 400 acres for the monument on the land known as Oxon Cove
  Park in the District of Columbia. If soil conditions make construction of
  the monument in that area impossible, the Secretary shall select a suitable
  site of approximately the same size in another location in the District
  of Columbia. Construction may not begin until the Secretary determines
  that sufficient funds are available to insure completion of the monument
  in accordance with the approved design and plans.
SEC. 3. MAINTENANCE.
  The Secretary of the Interior and the Director of the Great American
  Flag Association shall be responsible for the care and maintenance of
  the monument.
SEC. 4. RESTRICTION ON FEDERAL FUNDS.
  The United States shall not pay any expense of the establishment of the
  monument.
SEC. 5. EXPIRATION OF AUTHORITY.
  The authority to establish the monument under section 1(a) of this Act
  shall expire at the end of the 10-year period beginning on the date of the
  enactment of this Act unless construction of the monument begins during
  that period.
