Congress did something well

Posted in Uncategorized at 12:57 AM by minoritybrief

Just the other day, two well deserved resolutions were passed in the House and Senate. H.RES.817 calls for supporting the goals and ideals of National Domestic Violence Awareness Month and expressing the sense of the House of Representatives that Congress should continue to raise awareness of domestic violence in the United States and its devastating effects on families and communities, and support programs designed to end domestic violence. S.Con.Res.43 authorizes the rotunda of the United States Capitol to be used for the presentation of the Congressional Gold Medal to former Senator Edward Brooke, the first African American elected by popular vote to the United States Senate and served with distinction for 2 terms from January 3, 1967, to January 3, 1979.
