SJ 168 IS 101st CONGRESS 1st Session S. J. RES. 168 To designate the week of October 2 through 8, 1989, as `America's Gold Week'. IN THE SENATE OF THE UNITED STATES June 22 (legislative day, JANUARY 3), 1989 Mr. MCCLURE (for himself, Mr. SYMMS, Mr. REID, and Mr. BRYAN) introduced the following joint resolution; which was read twice and referred to the Committee on the Judiciary JOINT RESOLUTION To designate the week of October 2 through 8, 1989, as `America's Gold Week'. Whereas gold is an essential component of many items used in high technology, space exploration, economics, and daily life; Whereas the gold industry currently employs hundreds of thousands of people in the mining, refining, manufacturing, and sales of gold and gold products; Whereas United States gold mining production has increased approximately 252 per centum since 1981; Whereas the United States is thereby moving toward self-sufficiency in gold thus contributing to the United States balance of trade; Whereas developments in gold mining have significantly contributed to the opening of the Western United States over the years; Whereas the American eagle gold bullion coins provide a lasting symbol of the United States wherever they are sold throughout the world; Whereas sales of the American eagle gold bullion coins contribute to reducing the national deficit and the balance of trade; and Whereas developments in gold mining and production significantly contribute to the economies and quality of life in all fifty States: Now, therefore, be it Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, That the week of October 2 through 8, 1989, is designated as `America's Gold Week', and the President is authorized and requested to issue a proclamation calling upon the people of the United States to observe such week with appropriate ceremonies and activities.
