Rep. Ted Budd Announces Bill Preserving 1776 Commission
Washington, January 25, 2021
Washington, D.C. -- Following President Biden’s executive order to disband the 1776 Commission, Rep. Ted Budd (R-NC) announced that he will introduce legislation to codify the commission into law.
Rep. Budd said in a statement:
“Preserving the principles that the United States was founded upon has to be at the core of our education system. The 1776 Commission was pushing back against an insidious movement to undermine our country’s exceptional founding and fundamentally transform our country by tearing down and rewriting our history. During these tumultuous times, we need more people leaning on America’s founding principles, not less. That’s why I’m proud to announce a bill to codify this commission into law and preserve American history.”
