 SENATE CONCURRENT RESOLUTION 120--EXPRESSING THE SUPPORT OF CONGRESS 
 FOR THE CREATION OF A NATIONAL HURRICANE MUSEUM AND SCIENCE CENTER IN 
                          SOUTHWEST LOUISIANA

  Mr. VITTER submitted the following concurrent resolution; which was 
referred to the Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation:

                            S. Con. Res. 120

       Whereas the Creole Nature Trail All-American Road District 
     Board of Commissioners has begun to create and develop a 
     National Hurricane Museum and Science Center in the southwest 
     Louisiana area;
       Whereas protecting, preserving, and showcasing the 
     intrinsic qualities that make Louisiana a one-of-a-kind 
     experience is the mission of the Creole Nature Trail All-
     American Road;
       Whereas the horrific experience and the devastating long-
     term effects of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita will play a major 
     role in the history of the United States;
       Whereas a science center of this caliber will educate and 
     motivate young and old in the fields of meteorology, 
     environmental science, sociology, conservation, economics, 
     history, communications, and engineering;
       Whereas it is only appropriate that the effects of 
     hurricanes and the rebuilding efforts be captured in a 
     comprehensive center such as a National Hurricane Museum and 
     Science Center to interpret the effects of hurricanes in and 
     outside of Louisiana; and
       Whereas it is critical that the history of past hurricanes 
     be preserved so that all people in the United States can 
     learn from this history: Now, therefore, be it
       Resolved by the Senate (the House of Representatives 
     concurring), That Congress supports and encourages the 
     creation of a National Hurricane Museum and Science Center in 
     southwest Louisiana.
