[H. Res. 605 Engrossed in House (EH)]


                 In the House of Representatives, U.S.,

                                                      October 24, 2000.
Whereas communities should implement an emergency alert plan such as the Amber 
        Plan to expedite the recovery of abducted children;
Whereas the Amber Plan, a partnership between law enforcement agencies and media 
        officials, assists law enforcement, parents, and local communities to 
        respond immediately to the most serious child abduction cases;
Whereas the Amber Plan was created in 1996 in memory of 9-year-old Amber 
        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 
        nationwide;
Whereas the Amber Plan is responsible for reuniting children with their 
        searching parents: Now, therefore, be it
    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.
