Summary

  • Title II of this Act amends the Act of May 17, 1954 entitled "An Act to provide for the construction of the Jefferson National Expansion Memorial at the site of old Saint Louis, Missouri, in general accordance with the plan approved by the United States Territorial Expansion Memorial Commission, and for other purposes" (68 Stat. 98; 16 U.S.C. 450jj). The new section authorizes the Secretary of the Interior to designate for addition to the Memorial not more than one hundred acres in the city of East Saint Louis, Illinois.
  • The additional acreage authorized by this section is in recognition of the historical significance of the Memorial site to the westward expansion of the United States and the historical linkage of this site on the Mississippi in both Missouri and Illinois to such expansion, the international recognition of the Gateway Arch, designed by Eero Saarinen, as one of the world's great sculptural and architectural achievements, and the increasing use of the Memorial site by millions of people from all over the United States and the world. The Jefferson National Expansion Memorial Commission is established. The Commission shall be composed of twenty members including the Secretary of the Smithsonian Institution. The Commission shall terminate on the day occurring ten years after the date of enactment of this section.
  • Within two years from the enactment of this section, the Commission shall develop and transmit to the Secretary a development and management plan for the East Saint Louis, Illinois, portion of the Memorial. For the purposes of the East Saint Louis portion of the Memorial, there is authorized to be appropriated not to exceed $1,000,000 for land acquisition and not to exceed $1,250,000 for development, of which not to exceed $500,000 shall be available only for landscaping and only for expenditure in the ratio of one dollar of Federal funds to one dollar of non-Federal funds.
