SUPPORTING PRESIDENT BUSH'S ECONOMIC SECURITY PLAN.
Whereas, President George W. Bush has proposed a bipartisan economic security package to protect jobs; and
Whereas, President Bush's plan reduces taxes for low and moderate income households, ensuring that the most vulnerable workers will have more money in their pockets; and
Whereas, President Bush's plan promotes new job creation; and
Whereas, President Bush's plan provides three billion dollars in special national emergency grants to help displaced workers maintain health coverage, supplement their income, and receive job training; and
Whereas, President Bush's plan makes eleven billion dollars available to states to help low-income workers obtain health insurance; and
Whereas, President Bush's plan encourages affected workers to take advantage of more than six billion dollars in existing federal job search, training, and placement programs; and
Whereas, President Bush's plan encourages businesses to invest in new equipment and resources, allowing them to make purchases they might not otherwise have been able to afford; and
Whereas, President Bush's plan gives consumers more to spend and invest, and gives businesses and entrepreneurs more resources to help them retain or create more jobs; and
Whereas, President Bush's plan reduces taxes for low and moderate income households beyond relief already approved by Congress, ensuring that the most vulnerable workers will have more money in their pockets; and
Whereas, the economic security package has passed the United States House of Representatives twice and has bipartisan majority support in the United States Senate. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives:
That the members of the House of Representatives of the State of South Carolina, by this resolution, instruct our elected representatives in the United States Senate to urge Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle to allow President Bush's economic security package to receive a vote.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to South Carolina's elected representatives in the United States Senate.
