    Recognizing the 110th anniversary of the Northwest Labor Press.

Whereas, in 1900, the first issue of the Northwest Labor Press was published as 
        the Portland Labor Press;
Whereas the paper changed its name to the Oregon Labor Press in 1915, and to the 
        Northwest Labor Press in 1986 to better describe its growing readership 
        and coverage area;
Whereas the Northwest Labor Press was founded to deliver news, editorials, and 
        information about issues that affect organized labor in the Pacific 
        Northwest;
Whereas the Northwest Labor Press is one of the oldest continuous publications 
        dedicated to union news in the United States;
Whereas the Northwest Labor Press has the third largest paid circulation in the 
        Portland, Oregon, metropolitan area with nearly 60,000 subscribers;
Whereas, for 110 years, the Northwest Labor Press has been instrumental in 
        providing news and information in print and online to workers and 
        retirees around the Pacific Northwest that goes unreported by other 
        media;
Whereas the Northwest Labor Press is committed to protecting a worker's right to 
        organize by providing an avenue for open communications between union 
        members and the labor community as a whole; encouraging the purchase and 
        use of union-made goods and services; and endorsing State, local, and 
        Federal policies that support workers;
Whereas, in 1910, the Labor Press added a column on women's interests that later 
        focused on news about women's suffrage and other civil rights;
Whereas the Labor Press continues to provide a comprehensive calendar of union 
        meetings for workers in the Northwest; and
Whereas the Northwest Labor Press is a national model for quality, in-depth 
        reporting on labor issues: Now, therefore, be it
    Resolved, That the House of Representatives recognizes the 110th 
anniversary of the Northwest Labor Press.
