INVITING THE JOINT LEGISLATIVE COMMITTEE ON TOURISM AND TRADE, THE SOUTH CAROLINA DEPARTMENT OF PARKS, RECREATION AND TOURISM, THE WADE HAMPTON CHORAL GROUP, AND THE PELHAM ROAD ELEMENTARY SINGERS TO ATTEND A HOUSE ASSEMBLY IN THE HALL OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES ON WEDNESDAY, APRIL 15, 1992, AT 10:30 A.M., FOR THE PURPOSE OF RECOGNIZING THE IMPORTANCE OF TOURISM IN SOUTH CAROLINA AND PRESENTING THE HIGHLY ACCLAIMED ORIGINAL SONG, "COMING HOME", WHICH PAYS TRIBUTE TO THE CITIZENS OF SOUTH CAROLINA, AND EXTENDING THE PRIVILEGE OF THE FLOOR OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES TO THESE GROUPS AND PERSONS ON THE DATE AND AT THE TIME STATED AND FOR THE PURPOSES NAMED ABOVE.

Whereas, the State's travel and tourism industry has an economic impact of $6.3 billion and affects 172,000 jobs in the State's economy; and

Whereas, South Carolinians' friendly and warm hospitality represents a key element in promoting the State's appeal to visitors, along with the State's beautiful outdoors, its sunny climate, outstanding attractions, and important history; and

Whereas, the State's tourism promotion campaign acknowledges the importance of friendly South Carolinians in its tourism slogan, "South Carolina: Smiling Face, Beautiful Places"; and

Whereas, the Longwoods International Inc. Travel USA 1991 study underscores the vital importance of hospitality to a strong tourism economy. The study shows that vacationing in a "hospitable place that is safe, relaxing, warm, and friendly" is very significant to travelers. South Carolina ranks fourteenth among the fifty states as a touring destination; and

Whereas, revenue from the state's travel and tourism industry cuts two hundred seventy dollars from each household's state and local tax bill; and

Whereas, tourism revenue enhances the quality of life in South Carolina and reaches into all areas of the State; and

Whereas, visitors from Canada and Europe have acknowledged the State's friendly atmosphere and abundant vacation opportunities by spending more than one hundred million dollars within the State; and

Whereas, it is important to the members of the House of Representatives to have the opportunity to salute the State of South Carolina and its people through the lyrics of the original new song, "Coming Home". Now, therefore,

Be it resolved by the House of Representatives:

That the members of the House of Representatives, by this resolution, invite the Joint Legislative Committee on Tourism and Trade, the South Carolina Department of Parks, Recreation and Tourism, the Wade Hampton Choral Group, and the Pelham Road Elementary Singers to attend a House assembly in the Hall of the House of Representatives on Wednesday, April 15, 1992, at 10:30 A.M., for the purpose of recognizing the importance of tourism in South Carolina and presenting the highly acclaimed original song, "Coming Home", which pays tribute to the citizens of South Carolina.

Be it further resolved that the privilege of the floor of the House of Representatives be extended to the above-named groups and persons on the date and at the time stated above and for the purposes named above.

Be it further resolved that copies of this resolution be forwarded to the chairman of the Joint Legislative Committee on Tourism and Trade, the executive director of the South Carolina Department of Parks, Recreation and Tourism, the Wade Hampton Choral Group, and the Pelham Road Elementary Singers.
