[Congressional Bills 106th Congress] [From the U.S. Government Printing Office] [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.
