                               RESOLUTION


 
Relating to the death of the Honorable Daniel K. Inouye, a Senator from 
                          the State of Hawaii.

Whereas the Honorable Daniel K. Inouye was elected to the House of 
        Representatives in 1959, the year Hawaii became a State, and to the 
        Senate in 1962, where he served the people of Hawaii with devotion and 
        distinction for 50 years, the second longest term of service in Senate 
        history;
Whereas the Honorable Daniel K. Inouye volunteered at age 17 and served in the 
        famed 442nd Regimental Combat Team in Europe during World War II, where 
        he was seriously wounded in action, resulting in the loss of his arm, 
        and was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor for his extraordinary 
        heroism;
Whereas the Honorable Daniel K. Inouye served in the Senate as President pro 
        tempore, Chairman of the Committee on Appropriations, Chairman of the 
        Committee on Commerce, Chairman of the Select Committee on Intelligence, 
        and Chairman of the Committee on Indian Affairs;
Whereas the Honorable Daniel K. Inouye was a champion of the Nation's servicemen 
        and women, veterans, American Indians, Alaska Natives, Native Hawaiians, 
        and of equal opportunity for all;
Whereas his efforts on behalf of the citizens of Hawaii and all Americans earned 
        him the esteem and high regard of his colleagues; and
Whereas with his death his State and the Nation have lost an outstanding 
        lawmaker and public servant: Now, therefore, be it
    Resolved, That the House of Representatives--
            (1) receives with profound sorrow the news of the death of 
        the Honorable Daniel K. Inouye, a Senator from the State of 
        Hawaii;
            (2) authorizes the Speaker to appoint such Members as he 
        may designate to serve with members of the Senate as a 
        committee to represent the House in attendance at the funeral 
        of the Senator;
            (3) directs the Clerk to communicate this resolution to the 
        Senate and transmit a copy to the family of the Senator; and
            (4) when it adjourns today, does so as a further mark of 
        respect to the memory of the Senator.
                                 <all>
