Supporting the goals and ideals of Tinnitus Awareness Week.
IN THE SENATE OF THE UNITED STATES

Mr. Lieberman (for himself, Mrs. Lincoln, and Mr. Wyden) submitted the

workplace, where an estimated 30,000,000 individuals in the United
States are exposed to injurious levels of noise each day, and where

Whereas tinnitus is also caused by exposure to loud noises in recreational
settings, where levels of sound can reach traumatic levels, and where
individuals frequently are not aware that temporary ringing in the ears
can become permanent after continued exposure to loud levels of sound;
Whereas in many cases, simply wearing proper hearing protection would protect

condition is to learn to live with it, even though treatments for
tinnitus are available that can help reduce the stress of the incessant
ringing and increase the coping skills and quality of life for
individuals who experience this condition; and
Whereas the American Tinnitus Association has designated the week beginning May
15, 2004, as the first National Tinnitus Awareness Week, in order to
raise public awareness and to further its mission to silence tinnitus

noise, and the importance of hearing protection for all
(3) commits to continuing its support of innovative hearing

particularly through the National Institute on Deafness and
Other Communication Disorders, so that treatments for tinnitus
can be refined and a cure for tinnitus can be discovered.
