El paquete legislativo aprobado por el Congreso el lunes por la noche también da luz verde a la creación de dos museos Smithsonian largamente esperados en la capital del país: uno centrado en los latinos estadounidenses y otro dedicado a la historia de las mujeres estadounidenses.
Congresswoman Carolyn B. Maloney (D-NY) released the following statement after House and Senate passage of the FY21 Omnibus and Coronavirus Relief Bill, applauding the inclusion of approximately $4 billion in emergency federal funding for the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA).
The massive legislation package passed by Congress Monday night also greenlights the establishment of two long-awaited Smithsonian museums in the nation's capital: one focused on American Latinos and another dedicated to American women's history.

WASHINGTON, DC – Congresswoman Carolyn B. Maloney (D-NY) released the following statement ahead of voting for the bipartisan, bicameral coronavirus relief and omnibus agreement package.

WASHINGTON, DC – Congresswoman Carolyn B. Maloney (D-NY), sponsor of H.R. 1980, the Smithsonian Women’s History Museum Act, was joined by original cosponsors Representatives Brian Fitzpatrick (R-PA), Brenda L. Lawrence (D-MI), and Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-DC) in celebrating the bill’s inclusion in the omnibus package announced today.
A sweeping year-end deal to provide coronavirus relief and fund the government also greenlights the creation of two new museums.
The deal, text of which was released Monday afternoon, will create the National Museum of the American Latino and Smithsonian American Women’s History Museum, after separate bills for the two museums were blocked earlier this month on the Senate floor.
After decades-long campaigns, a National Museum of the American Latino and a national museum of women’s history are finally on their way to becoming reality in Washington.
