December 5th, 2020 by WCBC Radio

Congress has approved the building of a national memorial to fallen journalists on federal land in the nation’s capital, two years after a gunman killed five people in the newsroom of the Capital Gazette, in Annapolis, Maryland.

The U.S. Senate unanimously approved the House version of the Fallen Journalists Memorial Act, co-sponsored by Maryland Sen. Ben Cardin, a Democrat, which authorizes the development and construction of a national monument to journalists.
