TO DESIGNATE THE WEEK OF MAY 16 THROUGH MAY 22, 2004, AS "TRANSPORTATION WEEK" IN SOUTH CAROLINA AND TO RECOGNIZE THE CRITICAL ROLE TRANSPORTATION PLAYS IN OUR DAILY LIVES.
Whereas, the economic well-being of this State and of our nation is dependent upon a sound transportation system; and
Whereas, safe, reliable, and high-quality transportation systems enhance the quality of life of the citizens of South Carolina and the nation by increasing mobility and convenience; and
Whereas, South Carolina's transportation network takes us where we need to go while keeping our economy moving, and our transportation industry is committed to meeting the needs of every farm, home, and business in the Palmetto State by working together to ensure sound, safe, and accessible transportation systems; and
Whereas, the transportation industry contributes to the military security of our nation through its ability to rapidly transport soldiers and supplies during periods of conflict; and
Whereas, "Transportation Week" calls attention to the importance of transportation to our quality of life, while encouraging our young people to consider transportation-related careers; and
Whereas, the 2004 observance of "Transportation Week" provides a unique opportunity for the transportation community to join together to educate the general public as users of the system, while creating greater awareness of the importance of transportation; and
Whereas, the South Carolina Transportation Policy and Research Council for the past twenty-three years has been an advocate for a sound transportation policy in the Palmetto State. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the Senate, the House of Representatives concurring:
That the members of the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina, by this resolution, designate the week of May 16 through 22, 2004, as "Transportation Week" in South Carolina and recognize the important role transportation plays in our daily lives.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to Ms. Norma Hamer, Executive Director, South Carolina Transportation Policy and Research Council, Post Office Box 50142, Columbia, South Carolina 29250.
