Duckworth and Durbin reintroduce bill to establish PdR national historic park

U.S. Senator Tammy Duckworth (D-IL) and U.S. Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin (D-IL) on Sept. 19 reintroduced their legislation to establish the Prairie du Rocher French Colonial National Historic Park.

This bill would recognize the cultural importance of the village, one of the oldest communities founded as a French settlement, as a nationally significant architectural village that embodies the cultural heritage of the United States.
