Little Rock Central High Historic Site Expansion Bill Becoming Law

Cotton Releases Statement on Bill Becoming Law

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) released the following statement on President Trump's signing into law a bill to expand the Little Rock Central High School Historic Site.

"This is a proud day for our state and for everyone who cares about American history. Preserving Little Rock Central High and the surrounding neighborhood will help make sure we never forget what the Little Rock Nine went through to banish ‘separate but equal' to the dustbin of history."

The bill adjusts the boundary of the Little Rock Central High School National Historic Site to include the 7 residences on South Park Street in Little Rock, which consist of 1.47 acres of specified land. 

The Department of the Interior may enter into separate cooperative agreements with the owners of such residences to mark, interpret, improve, restore, and provide technical assistance for the preservation and interpretation of their properties.
