Barnes Bill (UPDATED)

I mentioned last month that Pennsylvania Congressman Jim Gerlach, who at the time was in the middle of a close re-election contest, had announced plans to introduce a bill that, if enacted, would keep the Barnes Foundation from moving. Well, he won (by 3,000 votes), and he's kept his promise. Christopher Knight has a brief story in the LA Times today. The Main Line Times has a bit more. Gerlach's press release is here.

UPDATE: The New York Times has a brief piece on this today (last item, scroll down).
