National memorial proposed for site of terrorist massacre at Florida nightclub

A proposal to have the planned Pulse Memorial and Museum in Orlando declared a U.S. National Memorial took its key step Wednesday when U.S. Rep. Darren Soto presented the measure to the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Natural Resources.

Soto’s presentation came after the U.S. National Parks Service Director David Vela announced his agency was taking no position on the bill because the federal government would neither own nor operate the Pulse Memorial, which is being developed and would be run by the onePulse Foundation, a private nonprofit organization in Orlando.
