  Expressing the sense of the Congress that a postage stamp should be

reuniting America's missing children with their families, and to honor 
   the memories of those children who were victims of abduction and 



                              May 20, 2003

  Mr. Boehlert (for himself and Mr. Lampson) submitted the following 
     concurrent resolution; which was referred to the Committee on 
                           Government Reform


                         CONCURRENT RESOLUTION

  Expressing the sense of the Congress that a postage stamp should be 
    issued as a testimonial to the Nation's tireless commitment to 
reuniting America's missing children with their families, and to honor 
   the memories of those children who were victims of abduction and 

Whereas there are reported missing in the United States approximately 200 
        children each day and up to 800,000 children each year;
Whereas the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children was established 
        19 years ago as the Nation's resource center and clearinghouse for 
        information on America's missing children, and issued a national call to 
        action requesting the participation of every citizen to assist in the 
        search for the country's missing youth;
Whereas it is the collective responsibility of all Americans to better protect 
        the Nation's children, as well as to assist in the search for those who 
        are missing;
Whereas the issuance of a stamp bearing the image of a missing child sends a 
        powerful message both at its unveiling and on each letter on which it is 
        sent, and Americans will neither tolerate the victimization of their 
        children nor rest until each missing child is reunited with his or her 
        family; and
Whereas the Missing Children's Stamp Committee, headquartered in New York State, 
        has collected more than 26,000 letters from around the world in support 
        of such a stamp: Now, therefore, be it
    Resolved by the House of Representatives (the Senate concurring), 
That it is the sense of the Congress that--
            (1) a postage stamp should be issued by the United States 
        Postal Service to honor all missing children; and
            (2) the Citizens' Stamp Commission of the United States 
        Postal Service should recommend to the Postmaster General that 
        such a stamp be issued.
