National Parks

Illinois Congressman Mike Bost (R-Murphysboro) introduced legislation Tuesday that would establish Cahokia Mounds in Collinsville, Illinois as a national park. 

"Outside of the midwest, many people haven't heard of Cahokia. So many Americans have no idea what this land means to us," Bost said. "That is why I have introduced H.R. Bill 3824, a bill to make Cahokia Mounds a national park."
