What is it?

This bill would direct the Speaker of the House of Representatives and the President Pro Tempore of the Senate to make arrangements for the presentation of a congressional gold medal to Jack Nicklaus in recognition of his service to the nation in promoting excellence and good sportsmanship. The bill directs the Secretary of the Treasury to strike the gold medal and to also strike and sell duplicate bronze medals at a price sufficient to cover the costs of the gold and bronze medals. The corresponding House bill is identical. 


If enacted, the bill might lead to an increase of televised infomercials selling bronze Jack Nicklaus medals.


No significant impact on the federal budget.
