H.Res. 448 (ih) Expressing the sense of the House of Representatives in continued sympathy for the victims of the Oklahoma City bombing on the occasion of the 5th anniversary of the bombing. [Introduced in House] ...
H. Res. 448
In the House of Representatives, U.S.,
April 10, 2000.
Whereas on April 19, 1995, as the result of an act of terrorism, a bomb exploded
in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, collapsing the north face of the 9-story
Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building;
Whereas April 19, 2000, marks the 5th anniversary of this tragic event;
Whereas the explosion killed more than 168 people, including 19 children, and
injured more than 700 others in the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building
and in and around surrounding buildings;
Whereas the explosion destroyed a childcare facility located in the Alfred P.
Murrah Federal Building, killing 15 children;
Whereas 320 surrounding buildings were impacted from the explosion;
Whereas flying glass and debris from the explosion were a major cause of injury;
Whereas greater awareness and sensitivity to the safe design and operation of
buildings could help make the people who live and work in and around the
buildings safer: Now, therefore, be it
Resolved, That the House of Representatives--
(1) recognizes the countless acts of goodwill by the thousands of
volunteers (including those who donated goods and services), rescue
workers, and Federal, State, and local officials who assisted in the
rescue and recovery efforts following the bombing in Oklahoma City,
Oklahoma, on April 19, 1995;
(2) sends continued condolences to the families, friends, and loved
ones who still suffer from the consequences of the bombing;
(3) pledges to make Federal buildings safer, while still maintaining
a level of openness to the citizens served by the buildings;
(4) pledges to create an awareness of the dangers of flying glass
and debris resulting from an act of terrorism, an explosion, or a
natural disaster; and
(5) pledges to support efforts to make buildings more secure for
people from flying glass and debris and to promote the use of available
technology to protect people from such glass and debris.
