    Girl Scouts Commemorative Coin Passes House

    http://www.coinnews.net/2009/10/15/girl-scouts-commemorative-coin-passes-house/

    By CoinNews.net on Oct 15th, 2009

    Legislation passed in the U.S. House of Representatives on Tuesday that would authorize the United States Mint to strike up to 350,000 commemorative silver dollars in 2013 to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Girl Scouts of the USA.

    The Girl Scouts USA Centennial Commemorative Coin Act, or H.R. 621, was introduced on Jan. 21 by Rep. Jack Kingston. It represents a second attempt at passage as the first version failed to make its way through last years 110th Congress.

    The Girl Scouts USA Centennial Commemorative Coin Act includes a provision for a $10 surcharge per coin paid to the Girl Scouts of the United States of America and made available for Girl Scout program development and delivery.

    H.R. 621 is currently before the Senate. Members there have the option to move on it or their own version (S. 451), which was introduced on Feb. 25 by Sen. Susan Collins.

    For coinage legislation to become law, it must pass in the House, the Senate and get signed by the President.
