Last week the U.S. House of Representatives passed the ‘National Baseball Hall of Fame Commemorative Coin Act’
GovTrack.us shares with us the following details of the bill:
- 14,000,000 baseball fans have visited the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum.
- There will be a surcharge of $35 per coin for the $5 coin, $10 for the dollar coin and $5 for the half-dollar coin.
- All surcharges shall be promptly paid by the Secretary to the National Baseball Hall of Fame to help finance its operations.
Congressman Richard Hanna, a graduate of the same college in Oregon that Steve Jobs dropped-out of is sponsoring the bill. He now lives 50 miles north of Cooperstown…..
BTW: Ron Paul (TX) was one of only three U.S. Reps. to vote against the bill. What does Rachel Maddow think about that?!?!
