Legislation Introduced to Put Ronald Reagan on the $50 Bill
Since 1913, Americans have seen the portrait of former General and President Ulysses S. Grant on the front of the $50 bill. However, on March 2nd, Congressman Patrick McHenry (NC-10) announced the introduction of H.R. 4705, a bill that would rework the design of the $50 bill to add Ronald Reagan's face. To read more about Congressman McHenry's bill, click here.
The Ronald Reagan Legacy Project is supportive of this effort that would add Reagan to our currency. To see RRLP's press release supporting Congressman McHenry's bill, click here.
"Having President Reagan's image on the $50 bill will keep Ronald Reagan's memory and achievements fresh for generations to come." -Grover Norquist
If you would like to join RRLP in supporting the placement of Reagan's picture on the $50 bill, please consider contacting your Member of Congress and asking them to co-sponsor and vote for H.R. 4705.
February 6, 2010: Ronald Reagan Day
Today, the Ronald Reagan Legacy Project celebrates the 99th anniversary of the birth of Ronald Reagan, our 40th President.
Every year we ask governors from all over the country to make proclamations setting aside February 6th as "Ronald Reagan Day." In 2010, twenty-seven governors made this proclamation honoring the Gipper. To see if your Governor made such a proclamation, click here.
Each proclamation and every Reagan dedication serve as a "teaching moment" to those who did not live to appreciate our 40th President. Every road, building, or mountain named after Ronald Reagan serve as a reminder of his life and an opportunity to discuss the success of his presidency.
The Ronald Reagan Legacy Project is dedicated to preserving the legacy of one of America's greatest presidents throughout the nation and abroad. The proclamations from governors all over the country transcend partisan politics to honor a great president.
Take a moment of your day to remember the life of our 40th President. Have a nice Ronald Reagan Day.

A couple of quotes from our 40th President of the United States found on the app are:
"There is not limit to what a man can do or where he can go if he doesn't mind who gets the credit."
"Government is not a solution to our problem, government is the problem."
