NO. R-72. JOINT RESOLUTION RELATING TO FAMILY WEEK.

(J.R.H. 50)

Offered by: Representatives Seibert of Norwich and Milne of Washington.

Whereas, the family is an important institution for our society, and

Whereas, we are observing in our nation a breaking up of family life at an increasing rate with serious effects in many segments of our society, particularly the welfare of children and the weakening of the greatest strength of America, and

Whereas, there is increasing concern among all Americans over the dissolution of family life and the effects such destruction portends for our nation, and

Whereas, good family relationships constitute the primary source of strength in our community, now therefore be it

Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives:

That we hereby recognize the week beginning Sunday, November 21, 1999, as Family Week.
