CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - A bill that U.S. Sen. Kelly Ayotte helped introduce to benefit breast cancer research is awaiting President Barack Obama’s signature.

The bill would create commemorative pink, silver, and metal-alloy coins to benefit the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. They would become available for purchase in 2018, and would be minted the following year using the funding from coin orders.

The Senate has passed the bill introduced by the New Hampshire Republican and Democratic Senator Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota. The House has passed the bill.
