   June and July 1998, expressing support to the State and people of 
 Florida as they overcome the effects of the fires, and commending the 
 heroic efforts of firefighters from across the Nation in battling the

Whereas during June and July 1998, wild land fires destroyed approximately

        aggregate value of more than $276,000,000;
Whereas the fires have affected 67 counties in the State of Florida;
Whereas the President of the United States issued a major disaster declaration 
        for the State of Florida;
Whereas the fires have damaged at least 367 homes and 33 businesses;
Whereas the fires have caused business closures and have aggravated drought 
        conditions, which will have a long-term impact on the economy of the 
        region;
Whereas the fires have caused injuries to at least 95 people, the majority of 
        whom are firefighters;
Whereas approximately 7,000 firefighters from 46 States have braved extreme 
        conditions to assist firefighters in Florida in fighting the fires;

        Federal Emergency Management Agency, the Forest Service, the Department 
        of Defense, the Department of Transportation, AmeriCorps, the Small 
        Business Administration, the General Services Administration, the 
        National Guard, the American National Red Cross, and the Civil Air 
        Patrol, have contributed vital support functions in response to the 
        fires; and
Whereas many State and local government agencies have also contributed vital 
        support functions in response to the fires: Now, therefore, be it
    Resolved by the House of Representatives (the Senate concurring), 
That the Congress--
            (1) expresses deepest condolences to the State and people

        the Nation in battling the fires; and
            (4) commends the many agencies of or established by the

        agencies that have contributed vital support functions in
