H. CON. RES. 93
IN THE SENATE OF THE UNITED STATES
May 4, 1999
Received and referred to the Committee on the Judiciary
Expressing the sense of the Congress regarding the social problem of
child abuse and neglect and supporting efforts to enhance public
awareness of this problem.
Whereas each year more than 3,000,000 children in the United States are reported
as suspected victims of child abuse and neglect;
Whereas more than 500,000 American children are currently unable to live safely
with their families and have been placed in foster homes and
Whereas it is estimated that more than 1,000 children in the United States, 78
percent of whom are less than 5 years of age and 38 percent of whom are
less than 1 year of age, lose their lives each year as a direct result
of abuse and neglect;
Whereas the tragic social problem of child abuse and neglect results in human
and economic costs due to its relationship to crime and delinquency,
drug and alcohol abuse, domestic violence, and welfare dependency; and
Whereas April has been designated by the President as Child Abuse Prevention
Month to focus public awareness on this social ill: Now, therefore, be
Resolved by the House of Representatives (the Senate concurring),
(1) it is the sense of the Congress that--
(A) the faith community, nonprofit organizations,
State and local officials involved in prevention of
child abuse and neglect, and volunteers throughout the
United States should recommit themselves and mobilize
their resources to assist children in danger of abuse
(B) Federal resources should be marshalled in a
manner that maximizes their impact on the prevention of
child abuse and neglect;
(C) because abuse and neglect of children increases
the likelihood that they will later engage in criminal
activity, State and local officials should be provided
with increased flexibility that allows them to use
Federal law enforcement resources in the fight to
prevent child abuse and neglect if they consider that
use appropriate; and
(D) child protective services agencies, law
enforcement agencies, and the judicial system should
coordinate their efforts to the maximum extent possible
to prevent child abuse and neglect; and
(2) the Congress--
(A) supports efforts in the United States to--
(i) focus the attention of the Nation on
the disturbing problem of child abuse;
(ii) demonstrate gratitude to the people in
the United States who work to keep children
(iii) encourage individuals to take action
in their own communities to make them healthier
places in which children can grow and thrive;
(B) commends the faith community, nonprofit
organizations, State and local officials involved in
prevention of child abuse and neglect, and volunteers
throughout America for their efforts on behalf of
abused and neglected children everywhere.
Passed the House of Representatives April 29, 1999.
