H. RES. 215

Encouraging creditors to safeguard the credit scores of members of the Armed Forces and their immediate family in the event of a Government shutdown.


IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES
April 8, 2011

Mr. Rigell (for himself, Mr. Hurt, Mr. Goodlatte, Mr. Scott of Virginia, and Mr. Wittman) submitted the following resolution; which was referred to the Committee on Financial Services


RESOLUTION

Encouraging creditors to safeguard the credit scores of members of the Armed Forces and their immediate family in the event of a Government shutdown.

Whereas members of the Armed Forces and their families are the backbone of the Nation;

Whereas men and women in uniform are putting their lives on the line and fighting for freedom around the world;

Whereas without the sacrifices of members of the Armed Forces, the people of the United States would not enjoy the freedoms they have today;

Whereas the failure to enact an appropriations bill for the Department of Defense for fiscal year 2011 has had a profound effect on military families and their budgets;

Whereas a Government shutdown would delay military pay for members of the Armed Forces and their families, causing them severe distress; and

Whereas the inability of members of the Armed Forces to meet monthly financial obligations may have a profound impact on their credit scores due to no fault of their own: Now, therefore, be it

Resolved, That the House of Representatives encourages creditors to safeguard the credit scores of members of the Armed Forces and their immediate family in the event of a lapse in appropriations for the Department of Defense as a result of a failure to enact a regular appropriations bill or continuing resolution.
