Be It Therefore Resolved,

Over the last month, we have not accomplished a great deal in the House, at least not in terms of meaningful legislation. But, at least we have the resolutions. Resolutions are non-binding statements asking Congress to do something or recognizing something or someone. Yesterday, we had no less than 8 resolutions to sign on to:
HR164 Recognize September 9 as "Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders Awareness Day"
HR165 Ask Congress to pass HR 2927, which responsibly balances achievable fuel economy increases with important economic and social concerns, including consumer demand.
HR166 Ask the Feds to spend $1,000,000 on a rail transit route between Livingston and Washtenaw counties.
HR167 Declare September 2007 as College Savings Month.
HR168 Urge municipalities to participate in the Storm Ready Program.
HR169 Urge the MI State Police to determine the extent of dog fighting activity.
HR170 Commemorating the 40th anniversary of MSU's James Madison College.
HR171 Commemorate September as National Alcohol and Drug Addiction Recovery Month.

Looks like September is going to be a busy month for commemorators. Just curious - before each day begins does Speaker Dillon say "The voters are watching! Quick everyone look busy."
