Utah Republican Rep. Rob Bishop has introduced legislation to scrap the design for a memorial honoring President Dwight D. Eisenhower in Washington, D.C.
Bishop is citing objections from Ike's family and the project's cost. He's proposing a new design competition and seeks to eliminate $100 million in future funding for the current design.
Eisenhower's family has called the current design "too extravagant." It consists of a proposed memorial park with statues of the president and World War II hero, framed by large metal tapestries depicting Ike's boyhood home in Kansas.
The commission behind the project says they are "saddened" by the bill and calls it an insult to Eisenhower's legacy.
