SENATE RESOLUTION 410--SUPPORTING AND RECOGNIZING THE GOALS AND IDEALS 
  OF ``RV CENTENNIAL CELEBRATION MONTH'' TO COMMEMORATE 100 YEARS OF 
         ENJOYMENT OF RECREATION VEHICLES IN THE UNITED STATES

  Mr. BAYH (for himself and Mr. Lugar) submitted the following 
resolution; which was referred to the Committee on the Judiciary:

                              S. Res. 410

       Whereas 1910 marks the first year of mass-produced, 
     manufactured, motorized campers and camping trailers;
       Whereas 1 in 12 households in the United States own a 
     recreation vehicle (referred to in this preamble as an 
     ``RV''), and over 30,000,000 RV enthusiasts take part in this 
     affordable and environmentally friendly form of vacationing;
       Whereas RV vacations allow families in the United States to 
     build stronger relationships, explore the great outdoors, and 
     take part in healthy activities;
       Whereas this homegrown industry, including RV 
     manufacturers, suppliers, dealers, and campgrounds, employs 
     hundreds of thousands of people in good-paying jobs across 
     all 50 states;
       Whereas traveling in an RV offers the freedom, comfort, and 
     flexibility to see all parts of the United States, from 
     historic landmarks and National Parks to local campgrounds 
     and sporting events; and
       Whereas the 100th anniversary of the introduction of the RV 
     into the marketplace in the United States will be celebrated 
     June 7, 2010, at the RV/MH Hall of Fame in Elkhart, Indiana: 
     Now, therefore, be it
       Resolved, That the Senate--
       (1) supports and recognizes the goals and ideals of ``RV 
     Centennial Celebration Month'' to commemorate 100 years of 
     enjoyment of recreation vehicles in the United States; and
       (2) encourages the people of the United States to celebrate 
     this anniversary by taking part in recreation vehicle 
     vacations.
