AUTHORIZING THE USE OF EMANCIPATION HALL IN THE CAPITOL VISITOR CENTER 
  FOR A CEREMONY TO PRESENT THE CONGRESSIONAL GOLD MEDAL TO THE FOOT 
   SOLDIERS WHO PARTICIPATED IN THE 1965 SELMA TO MONTGOMERY MARCHES

  Mrs. MILLER of Michigan. Mr. Speaker, I ask unanimous consent that 
the Committee on House Administration be discharged from further 
consideration of House Concurrent Resolution 109, and ask for its 
immediate consideration in the House.
  The Clerk read the title of the concurrent resolution.
  The SPEAKER pro tempore. Is there objection to the request of the 
gentlewoman from Michigan?
  There was no objection.
  The text of the concurrent resolution is as follows:

                            H. Con. Res. 109

       Resolved by the House of Representatives (the Senate 
     concurring),

     SECTION 1. USE OF EMANCIPATION HALL FOR CEREMONY TO PRESENT 
                   CONGRESSIONAL GOLD MEDAL TO THE FOOT SOLDIERS 
                   WHO PARTICIPATED IN THE 1965 SELMA TO 
                   MONTGOMERY MARCHES.

       Emancipation Hall in the Capitol Visitor Center is 
     authorized to be used on February 24, 2016, for a ceremony to 
     present the Congressional Gold Medal to the foot soldiers who 
     participated in the 1965 Selma to Montgomery marches, in 
     recognition of their heroic bravery and sacrifice, which 
     served as a catalyst for the Voting Rights Act of 1965. 
     Physical preparations for the conduct of the ceremony shall 
     be carried out in accordance with such conditions as the 
     Architect of the Capitol may prescribe.

  The concurrent resolution was agreed to.
  A motion to reconsider was laid on the table.
