S. RES. 19
To express a sense of the Senate to urge the President to recognize and include
the Director of National Drug Control Policy as a fully participative member
of the President's Cabinet.
IN THE SENATE OF THE UNITED STATES
January 25 (legislative day, JANUARY 3), 1989
Mr. DIXON submitted the following resolution; which was referred to the
Committee on Governmental Affairs
RESOLUTION
To express a sense of the Senate to urge the President to recognize and include
the Director of National Drug Control Policy as a fully participative member
of the President's Cabinet.
Whereas Members of both Houses of Congress as well as members of both political
parties supported the establishment of the Director of National Drug Control
Policy as a position having `Cabinet rank';
Whereas the Anti-Drug Abuse Act of 1988 (Public Law 100-690) established
the Director of National Drug Control Policy as a position on level with
all Secretaries of United States Departments;
Whereas the legislative intent of the Anti-Drug Abuse Act of 1988 (Public
Law 100-690) clearly supports the establishment of such a position at the
level of Cabinet rank;
Whereas the scourge of drugs continues to ravage the minds of the young,
tear apart the fabric of the American family, deplete our Nation's talent
pool, and our national treasury;
Whereas a positive signal to the Nation can be sent with the inclusion of
the Director of National Drug Control Policy as a fully participative member
of the President's Cabinet; and
Whereas to exclude the Director as a fully participative member of the
President's Cabinet would not send the much needed signal to the Nation and
to those who traffic in drugs of our seriousness in this fight on the war
on drugs and drug abuse: Now, therefore, be it
  Resolved, That it is the sense of the United States Senate that the President
  of the United States recognize and include the Director of National Drug
  Control Policy as a fully participative member of the President's Cabinet.
