WASHINGTON --Idaho’s two U.S. Senators, Mike Crapo and Jim Risch, joined a bipartisan coalition of 33 Senators in introducing legislation to award Officer Eugene Goodman the Congressional Gold Medal to honor him for his heroic actions on January 6, 2021. Goodman, a U.S. Capitol Police officer, confronted rioters in the Capitol, delaying their access to the Senate chamber and protecting the lives of those inside as they continued to evacuate. Actions similar to Officer Goodman’s were undertaken throughout the Capitol by his fellow U.S. Capitol Police officers and other law enforcement professionals. The bill was introduced by Senator Chris Van Hollen (D-Maryland).
