This bill would direct the Dept. of the Interior to conduct a special resource study into the feasibility and costs of designating the 1,400 square foot George W. Bush Childhood Home — located at 1412 West Ohio Avenue, Midland, Texas — as a unit of the National Park Service. The study would be completed within three years and provided to congressional natural resources committees.
The National Park Service and private organizations have preserved the childhood homes of many former presidents to serve as historical repositories for documents and artifacts from their presidencies. The Bush Childhood Home is currently operated by a non-profit and is open to the public.
