ORLANDO — The site of the Pulse massacre in 2016 is now a National Memorial.

Almost 50 people were killed in the mass shooting in the Orlando LGBTQ bar on June 12, 2016.

The One Pulse Foundation, established to create a memorial of the attack, announced on Friday that the U.S. House of Representatives had passed a bill to recognize the site as a National Memorial. A National Memorial is an official recognition by the United States as a site of historical importance.

The foundation thanked U.S Reps. Darren Soto, Val Demings and Stephanie Murphy. All three are Democrats who represent the Orlando area.
