                         CONCURRENT RESOLUTION

Expressing the sense of the Congress regarding the importance of organ, 
 tissue, bone marrow, and blood donation and supporting National Donor 

Whereas more than 70,000 individuals await organ transplants at any given 
Whereas another man, woman, or child is added to the national organ transplant 
        waiting list every 20 minutes;
Whereas despite the progress in the last 15 years, more than 15 people per day 
        die because of a shortage of donor organs;
Whereas almost everyone is a potential organ, tissue, and blood donor;
Whereas transplantation has become an element of mainstream medicine that 
        prolongs and enhances life;
Whereas for the fourth consecutive year, a coalition of health organizations is 
        joining forces for National Donor Day;
Whereas the first three National Donor Days raised a total of nearly 25,000 
        units of blood, added over 4,000 potential donors to the National Marrow 
        Donor Program Registry, and distributed tens of thousands of organ and 
        tissue pledge cards;
Whereas National Donor Day is America's largest one-day organ, tissue, bone 
        marrow, and blood donation event; and
Whereas a number of businesses, foundations, health organizations, and the 
        Department of Health and Human Services have designated February 10, 
        2001, as National Donor Day: Now, therefore, be it
    Resolved by the House of Representatives (the Senate concurring), 
That the Congress--
            (1) supports the goals and ideas of National Donor Day;
            (2) encourages all Americans to learn about the importance 
        of organ, tissue, bone marrow, and blood donation and to 
        discuss such donation with their families and friends; and
            (3) requests that the President issue a proclamation 
        calling on the people of the United States to conduct 
        appropriate ceremonies, activities, and programs to demonstrate 
        support for organ, tissue, bone marrow, and blood donation.

            Passed the House of Representatives March 7, 2001.
