Now it's Official: Abraham Lincoln National Heritage Area

George W. Bush

I have just learned that President Bush has indeed signed the "Abraham Lincoln National Heritage Area" bill into law.

I've been tracking this story for a few months now, from its original incarnation in October to the modified version the Congress passed last week.

The Journal Gazette-Times Courier in Charleston, Illinois is reporting that the funding for this project will go directly into the "Looking for Lincoln Heritage Coalition," which will then distribute the money to groups throughout central Illinois.

Again, as I get more information, I will pass it along.
