KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri’s Liberty Memorial in Kansas City is one step closer to gaining ramped up national status.

The U.S. Senate last week passed legislation that would designate the landmark as the nation’s World War I Museum and Memorial.

Other monuments with that status include the National WWII Memorial in Washington, D.C.

Both Sens. Roy Blunt and Claire McCaskill serve on the Senate Armed Services Committee and pushed for the provision in this year’s annual defense bill.

The bill now heads to the House for approval.
