_______________________________________________________________________

                         CONCURRENT RESOLUTION

Whereas the Peace Corps has become a powerful symbol of the commitment of the 
        United States to encourage progress, create opportunity, and expand 
        development at the grassroots level in the developing world;
Whereas more than 162,000 Americans have served as Peace Corps volunteers in 134 
        countries in Africa, Asia and the Pacific, Central Asia, Eastern and 
        Central Europe, and Central and South America since 1961;
Whereas Peace Corps volunteers have made significant and lasting contributions 
        around the world in agriculture, business, education, health, and the 
        environment, and have improved the lives of individuals and communities 
        around the world;
Whereas Peace Corps volunteers have strengthened the ties of friendship and 
        understanding between the people of the United States and those of other 
        countries;
Whereas Peace Corps volunteers, enriched by their experiences overseas, have 
        brought their communities throughout the United States a deeper 
        understanding of other cultures and traditions, thereby bringing a 
        domestic dividend to the United States;
Whereas Peace Corps volunteers embody and represent many of the most enduring 
        values of the United States, such as a spirit of service, a commitment 
        to helping others, and a call for friendship among nations;
Whereas the Peace Corps continues to receive broad, bipartisan support in 
        Congress and from the American people; and
Whereas March 1, 2001, will mark the 40th anniversary of the founding of the 
        Peace Corps: Now, therefore, be it
    Resolved by the Senate (the House of Representatives concurring), 
That--
            (1) the achievements and contributions of the Peace Corps 
        over the past 40 years be celebrated;
            (2) the dedication and sacrifice of Peace Corps volunteers, 
        past and present, be recognized and their continued 
        contributions be acknowledged not only for their service in 
        other countries but also in their own communities; and
            (3) the President is requested to honor Peace Corps 
        volunteers and reaffirm the commitment of the United States to 
        international peace and understanding.
    Sec. 2. The Secretary of the Senate shall transmit a copy of this 
concurrent resolution to the President.

            Passed the Senate February 28, 2001.

            Attest:

                                                             Secretary.
