Congress to former President Jimmy Carter and his wife Rosalynn Carter

SECTION 1. FINDINGS.

    The Congress finds that--
            (1) both former President Jimmy Carter and his wife 
        Rosalynn Carter have distinguished records of public service to 
        the American people and to the international community;
            (2) the peacemaking efforts of President Jimmy Carter as a 
        mediator in the Arab-Israeli dispute culminated in the Camp 
        David Accords signed by Egypt and Israel, which provided the 
        foundation for a settlement of the Middle East dispute that had 
        eluded peacemakers for more than 3 decades;
            (3) President Jimmy Carter was instrumental in the passage 
        of the Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act (16 
        U.S.C. 3101 et seq.), one of the most significant pieces of 
        environmental legislation ever approved by Congress;
            (4) in establishing his presidential library, President 
        Jimmy Carter sought to create a center for the service of 
        humanity in areas as diverse as politics, health care, human 
        rights, and democracy;
            (5) Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter epitomize the American 
        quality of voluntarism in action through their countless public 
        service activities in their home State of Georgia, the rest of 
        the United States, and throughout the world, including their 
        work for Habitat for Humanity, which helps needy people in the 
        United States and other countries renovate and build homes for 
        themselves; and
            (6) together, Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter have dedicated 
        their lives to promoting national pride and to bettering the 
        quality of life in the United States and throughout the world.
