It's been a long road but we're now close to the finish line.
The 1921 Silver Dollar Coin Anniversary Act has been passed by both houses of Congress. Thanks to everyone who contacted their representatives.
Patrick McBride of the Pennsylvania Association of Numismatists writes:
"The legislation that CCAC Chairman Tom Uram and CCAC Member Mike Moran have been tirelessly working for has passed the Senate! Tom as president of PAN has spearheaded our association to work with the same vigor to get this accomplished. We are going to have Morgan and Peace dollars in 2021. After the President's signature, it will become law. Here is a C-Span link at the moment it happened."

Here's an excerpt from Coin World's coverage.
H.R. 6192 authorizes production of Morgan and Peace dollars in not less than .900 fine silver, with the balance of the alloy in copper.
Uram said that, in discussions with U.S. Mint officials, they indicated options would include issues struck at the Denver, Philadelphia and San Francisco Mints.
Privy marks could be added to specific Morgan dollar issues to pay homage to the silver dollar output at the former Carson City Mint in Nevada and New Orleans Mint in Louisiana.
Uram said discussions included details for Proof and Uncirculated releases, with the possibility for special sets to include coins of different finishes from multiple Mints.
