The San Jose Mercury News is reporting that the House Resources Committee "approved spending $38 million to restore and preserve internment camps used to hold Japanese-Americans during World War II." The bill will now go to the full House.
The proposed legislation "faces opposition from the Bush administration, which objects to the expenditures because the National Park Service faces a tight budget and maintenance backlogs at parks." The article also notes that "President Ronald Reagan and Congress formally apologized in 1988 for the treatment of the people held" in the internment camps.
