Has polled the Concurrent Resolution out of Committee without report.
TO INVITE THE SOUTH CAROLINA YOUNG MEN'S CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION'S MIDDLE SCHOOL MODEL LEGISLATURE PROGRAM TO OBSERVE THE HOUSE AND SENATE IN SESSION ON THURSDAY, MAY 4, 1995, AND TO AUTHORIZE THE SOUTH CAROLINA YOUNG MEN'S CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION TO USE THE SENATE CHAMBER AND THE CHAMBER OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES ON FRIDAY, MAY 5, 1995, TO CONDUCT A MIDDLE SCHOOL MODEL LEGISLATURE PROGRAM.
Whereas, the purpose of the Young Men's Christian Association's Middle School Model Legislature program is to encourage our youth to develop enthusiasm and appreciation for government and community affairs; and
Whereas, students taking part in the program will run for statewide office, pass legislation, and organize their own government; and
Whereas, through these activities, the program will promote a life-long interest in government and encourage good citizenship; and
Whereas, the Middle School Model Legislature program is an extension of the highly successful and award-winning South Carolina Youth in Government program. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the Senate, the House of Representatives concurring:
That the Members of the General Assembly invite the South Carolina Young Men's Christian Association to observe the General Assembly in session on Thursday, May 4, 1995, as a part of its Middle School Model Legislature program.
Be it further resolved that the members of the General Assembly authorize the South Carolina Young Men's Christian Association to use the Senate Chamber and the Chamber of the House of Representatives on Friday, May 5, 1995, to conduct its Middle School Model Legislature program. If either House is in statewide session, the chamber of that House may not be used.
Be it further resolved that the offices of the Sergeants at Arms of the Senate and of the House of Representatives shall provide assistance and access as necessary for this meeting in accordance with applicable procedures, Rules of the Senate, and Rules of the House of Representatives.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to Ms. Mary Capers Bledsoe, Executive Director, YMCA Youth in Government, and the Honorable James R. Melton and the Honorable Mitchell G. Dorman, Sergeants at Arms of the Senate and of the House of Representatives, respectively.
