“After decades-long campaigns, a National Museum of the American Latino and a national museum of women’s history are finally on their way to becoming reality in Washington.
Both houses of Congress have voted to authorize the creation of the two museums as part of a $2.3-trillion year-end spending bill that legislators worked over the weekend to hammer out.
