                         CONCURRENT RESOLUTION


 
Expressing the sense of Congress that the Department of Defense should 
continue to exercise its statutory authority to support the activities 
 of the Boy Scouts of America, in particular the periodic national and 
                       world Boy Scout Jamborees.

Whereas the Boy Scouts of America was incorporated on February 8, 1910, and 
        received a Federal charter on June 15, 1916, which is codified as 
        chapter 309 of title 36, United States Code;
Whereas section 30902 of title 36, United States Code, states that it is the 
        purpose of the Boy Scouts of America to promote, through organization, 
        and cooperation with other agencies, the ability of boys to do things 
        for themselves and others, to train them in scoutcraft, and to teach 
        them patriotism, courage, self-reliance, and kindred virtues;
Whereas, since the inception of the Boy Scouts of America, millions of Americans 
        of every race, creed, and religion have participated in the Boy Scouts, 
        and the Boy Scouts currently uses more than 1,200,000 adult volunteers 
        to serve more than 4,700,000 young people;
Whereas the Department of Defense and members of the Armed Forces have a long 
        history of supporting the activities of the Boy Scouts of America and 
        individual Boy Scout troops in the United States, and section 2606 of 
        title 10, United States Code, authorizes the Department of Defense to 
        cooperate with and assist the Boy Scouts of America in establishing and 
        providing facilities and services for members of the Armed Forces and 
        their dependents, and civilian employees of the Department of Defense 
        and their dependents, at locations outside the United States;
Whereas sections 4682, 7541, and 9682 of title 10, United States Code, authorize 
        the Department of Defense to sell, and in certain cases donate, obsolete 
        or excess material to the Boy Scouts of America to support its 
        activities; and
Whereas, under section 2554 of title 10, United States Code, the Department of 
        Defense is authorized to make military installations available to, and 
        to provide equipment, transportation, and other services to, the Boy 
        Scouts of America to support national and world gatherings of Boy Scouts 
        at events known as Boy Scout Jamborees: Now, therefore, be it
    Resolved by the Senate (the House of Representatives concurring), 
That it is the sense of Congress that the Department of Defense should 
continue to exercise its long-standing statutory authority to support 
the activities of the Boy Scouts of America, in particular the periodic 
national and world Boy Scout Jamborees.
