The House on Tuesday also passed an amendment that would prohibit concession stores on National Park Service land from selling items featuring the Confederate flag, according to The Hill. The National Park Service in June asked that stores refrain from selling Confederate flags after numerous businesses stopped selling the flags in the wake of the shooting at a historic black church in South Carolina.
