Whereas communities should implement an emergency alert plan such as the Amber 
        Plan to expedite the recovery of abducted children;

        officials, assists law enforcement, parents, and local communities to 
        respond immediately to the most serious child abduction cases;

        Hagerman who was kidnapped and murdered in Arlington, Texas;
Whereas in response to community concern, the Association of Radio Managers with 
        the assistance of area law enforcement in Arlington, Texas, created the 
        Amber Plan;
Whereas, to date, the Amber Plan is credited with saving the lives of at least 9 
        children nationwide;
Whereas the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children endorses the 
        Amber Plan and is promoting the use of such emergency alert plans 
Whereas the Amber Plan is responsible for reuniting children with their

    Resolved, That it is the sense of the House of Representatives that Amber 
Plan is a powerful tool in fighting child abductions and should be used across 
the United States.
