March 14, 2007
S. Printed 3/14/07--S. [SEC 3/15/07 3:09 PM]
Read the first time March 7, 2007.
To whom was referred a Concurrent Resolution (S. 533) recognizing the urgency to take meaningful steps, beginning with covering all of America's children, to solve one of America's greatest problems, lack of sufficient health care, etc., respectfully
That they have duly and carefully considered the same and recommend that the same do pass:
DAVID L. THOMAS for Committee.
RECOGNIZING THE URGENCY TO TAKE MEANINGFUL STEPS, BEGINNING WITH COVERING ALL OF AMERICA'S CHILDREN, TO SOLVE ONE OF AMERICA'S GREATEST PROBLEMS, LACK OF SUFFICIENT HEALTH CARE, AND DESIGNATING APRIL 23-29, 2007, "COVER THE UNINSURED WEEK" IN SOUTH CAROLINA.
Whereas, more than forty-six million Americans do not have health care coverage; and
Whereas, eight out of ten people who are uninsured are in working families; and
Whereas, there are more than eight million children in America without health care coverage; and
Whereas, uninsured children are twice as likely as insured children to miss out on needed medical care; and
Whereas, uninsured Americans live sicker and die younger than those who are covered; and
Whereas, as costs continue to rise, fewer individuals and families can afford to pay for coverage and fewer small businesses are able to provide coverage for their employees. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the Senate, the House of Representatives concurring:
That the members of the General Assembly, by this resolution, recognize the urgency to take meaningful steps, beginning with covering all of America's children, to solve one of America's greatest problems, and hereby declare April 23-29, 2007, "Cover the Uninsured Week" in South Carolina.
