“`The bill was introduced by Democratic Senator Kamala Harris of California and Republican Senator Orrin Hatch of Utah.  They were joined by Georgia Republican Representative Doug Collins, Democratic Representative Brenda Lawrence of Michigan and the senators from her home state of Tennessee.


“`The bill’s language states that the Queen of Soul instilled hope, uplifted generations, and changed the lives of millions. The senators were high in their praise for Franklin, who spent time at the White House with a number of presidents,  including Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama.
