Washington, DC – Today, Congressman Steve Rothman (D-NJ) released the following statement on H.R. 3459, a bill to authorize the Creation of the National Museum of the American Latino:
I am proud to be a cosponsor and strong supporter of H.R. 3459, a bill that would authorize the Smithsonian’s Arts and Industries building on the National Mall as the designated location of the National Museum of the American Latino.
This legislation will bring us one step closer to creating a long overdue national museum to celebrate the rich cultural heritage that the Latino community has brought to our country. I am proud to represent a diverse congressional district that includes many of the more than 1.2 million Latinos who contribute to New Jersey’s economic, social, cultural, and political landscape. I look forward to working with my colleagues to pass this legislation and making this museum a reality.

"The Republican Governors Association raised $130,000 from tobacco companies during Christie’s stint as the group’s chairman, according to the most recent filings in June. The veto allows Christie to keep the peace with tobacco companies — and may very well prevent them from investing heavily in a presidential campaign for U.S. Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky, whose operatives could use the cash to finance attack ads against Christie in a tight primary contest." - columnist Charles Stile- The Bergen Record
