Obama Signs Bill to Honor President Reagan

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama has signed one for the Gipper.
With the stroke of a pen Tuesday, Obama created the Ronald Reagan Centennial Commission. The 11-person panel will plan and carry out activities to mark the 100th anniversary, in 2011, of the late president's birth. That may include issuing a postage stamp, a commemorative $1 coin or convening a joint session of Congress.

Reagan was born on June 6, 1911. He died in 2004.

His widow, former first lady Nancy Reagan, looked on as Obama signed the bill into law at the White House.
