H. CON. RES. 300
Recognizing and commending our Nation's Federal workforce for
successfully preparing our Nation to withstand any catastrophic Year
2000 computer problem disruptions.
H. CON. RES. 300
Whereas the Year 2000 computer problem (Y2K) created the potential of a
catastrophic international problem, causing some computer systems and
other electronic devices to erroneously misinterpret the ``00'' in the
year as 1900, rather than 2000;
Whereas the American people expected and deserved reliable service from their
Federal Government to ensure that critical Federal functions dependent
on electronic systems would be performed accurately and in a timely
Whereas, after the initial series of congressional Y2K hearings in the spring of
1996, it became clear that unless appropriate action was taken, the Y2K
problem could cause severe consequences on the successful operation of
Whereas Federal agencies and their employees subsequently made significant
progress in meeting the challenges posed by the Y2K computer problem;
Whereas minimizing the Y2K problem required a major technological and managerial
effort and it was critical that the Federal workforce rise to address
Whereas the continued uninterrupted operation of our Nation's Federal systems
was due to the comprehensive efforts made by those dedicated, talented,
and committed Federal workers who served ably in the front lines of this
epic battle in vanquishing the millennium bug;
Whereas the Federal workforce identified and worked to resolve the Y2K problem,
giving countless hours and their holidays to assure the American people
that major Y2K breakdowns in key infrastructures were unlikely;
Whereas the level of Y2K effort was justified and the threat was very real, and
the risks and consequences of inaction were too dire to justify a lesser
Whereas preparation for Y2K led to an unprecedented level of effort that not
only improved system inventories and network reliability, but has also
accelerated electronic business and international cooperation;
Whereas the efforts of the Federal workforce to solve the Y2K problem provided
an important example of the Government's ability to respond to future
difficult technological and management challenges; and
Whereas the level of Y2K success in the United States, which has over one-fourth
of the world's computer assets and is the most technologically dependent
nation in the world, was quite remarkable, and was led by our Federal
efforts: Now, therefore, be it
Resolved by the House of Representatives (the Senate concurring),
That Congress recognizes and commends the meritorious service of our
Nation's Federal workforce, and all those who assisted in the efforts
to successfully address the Year 2000 computer challenge.
Passed the House of Representatives May 2, 2000.
