Summary as passed: (all summaries)
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial Commission. Authorizes the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Commission to seek, receive, and expend gifts, grants, donations, bequests, and other funds in connection with its duties as directed by the Joint Rules Committee. This bill also establishes the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Fund into which gifts, grants, donations, and other funds obtained by the Commission will be deposited to provide financial support for its work, including private funds to support the King Living History and Public Policy Center, which is also established by this bill. The Commission is required by law to establish a memorial to Dr. King in the Commonwealth, which the Center fulfills. The Center, among other things, will (i) perform public policy analysis and scholarly inquiry and writing; (ii) acquire and preserve records, oral histories, and memorabilia documenting Dr. King's relationship with and impact on the Commonwealth; (ii) make the programs, activities, and resources of the Center available to public and private schools and the public; and (iv) provide support for undergraduate and graduate study at the participating public and private institutions of higher education that comprise the Center. In addition, the bill contains several technical amendments that conform the statute to the new legislative guidelines adopted by the Joint Rules Committee, and an emergency clause to allow the Commission to receive and expend pending donations and contributions. This bill is a recommendation of the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial Commission and is identical to SB 827.
