"H.R. 1425 would establish the Commission on Wartime Treatment of European Americans and the Commission on Wartime Treatment of Jewish Refugees. The first commission would review the conduct of the United States government during World War II towards European Americans and European Latin Americans. The second commission would focus on the government's treatment of Jewish refugees during World War II. Each commission, consisting of seven members, would have 18 months to report on its findings and recommendations. Members would serve without pay, but would be reimbursed for travel expenses. In addition, the commissions could hire staff or use personnel from other agencies. Each commission would terminate 60 days after submitting its final report. To fund the costs of the commissions, the bill would authorize the appropriation of $1.2 million ($600,000 per commission). "
