                         CONCURRENT RESOLUTION

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 
        manner;
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 
        Federal systems;
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 
        this challenge;
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 
        Federal effort;
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.

            Attest:

                                                                 Clerk.
