The House of Representatives has passed a bill mandating that the National Park Service take over Billy Carter's old gas station and make it part of the Jimmy Carter National Historic Site in Plains, Georgia. The legislation also calls on the park service to take over a house Jimmy Carter lived in from 1956 to 1961 and a state welcome center that may be closed because of budget cuts. The Congressional Budget Office says it will cost $17 million to upgrade and run the sites for five years.
