H. Res. 973

                In the House of Representatives, U. S.,

                                                    September 28, 2006.
Whereas the financial planning process can play a vital role in helping workers 
        achieve financial independence by empowering them to identify and manage 
        realistic financial objectives and meet the financial challenges that 
        arise at every stage of life;
Whereas all individuals in the United States can improve their quality of life 
        by securing competent, objective, and comprehensive financial advice to 
        assist them in attaining their financial goals;
Whereas 2 surveys released in 2006 by the Consumer Federation of America and the 
        Financial Planning Association revealed that 77 percent of financial 
        planners think it is very important for Americans to understand what net 
        personal wealth is, but only 49 percent of Americans know what 
        constitutes this wealth--financial assets plus home equity and other 
        tangible assets minus consumer debts;
Whereas, in the past year, proclamations have been issued in numerous States and 
        the District of Columbia recognizing the importance of the financial 
        planning process in meeting the goal of financial independence and other 
        long-term financial objectives; and
Whereas the Financial Planning Association has designated the week beginning 
        October 2, 2006, as ``Financial Planning Week'': Now, therefore, be it
    Resolved,  That the House of Representatives--
            (1) encourages Americans to observe ``Financial Planning Week'' with 
        appropriate programs and activities;
            (2) supports the goals and ideals of ``Financial Planning Week'';
            (3) recognizes the significant impact that sound financial planning 
        can have on securing financial independence and achieving life's goals 
        and dreams; and
            (4) acknowledges and commends the millions of families across the 
        United States, as well as the financial planning profession, for their 
        adherence and dedication to the financial planning process.
