S. CON. RES. 21



                           September 27, 1995

              Referred to the Committee on House Oversight


                         CONCURRENT RESOLUTION

Whereas in 1995, women of America are celebrating the 75th anniversary of their 
        right to participate in our government through suffrage;
Whereas Lucretia Mott, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, and Susan B. Anthony were 
        pioneers in the movement for women suffrage and the pursuit of equal 
        rights; and
Whereas, the relocation of the ``Portrait Monument'' to a place of prominence 
        and esteem in the Capitol Rotunda would serve to honor and revere the 
        contribution of thousands of women: Now, therefore, be it
    Resolved by the Senate (the House of Representatives concurring), 
That the Architect of the Capitol shall--
            (1) restore the ``Portrait Monument'' to its original state 
        and place it in the Rotunda of the United States Capitol; and
            (2) make all necessary arrangements for the rededication 
        ceremony of such statue in the Capitol Rotunda and procession 
        connected therewith, in cooperation with the 75th Anniversary 
        of Woman Suffrage Task Force.
    Sec. 2. The Rotunda of the Capitol is authorized to be used from 7 
o'clock ante meridiem until 4 o'clock post meridiem on August 26, 1995, 
for such ceremony.

            Passed the Senate July 17 (legislative day, July 10), 1995.
