House champions of legislation to jump-start the creation a women’s history museum in the nation’s capital are upping the pressure on Senate conservatives who are blocking the proposal in the upper chamber.
Reps. Carolyn Maloney (D-N.Y.) and Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.), lead sponsors of the House-passed bill, are urging Sens. Tom Coburn (R-Okla.) and Mike Lee (R-Utah) to drop their hold on the proposal in hopes of salvaging the legislation in the waning days of the 113th Congress.
“It’s just outrageous,” Maloney said Tuesday by phone, that two senators could block the popular bipartisan effort.
