  Mr. GRAVES of Missouri. Mr. Speaker, please join me as I rise today 
to recognize June 26th as Entrepreneur Day in Kansas City.
  The Greater Kansas City Chamber of Commerce and the Kauffman 
Foundation have a unique vision to make Kansas City America's Most 
Entrepreneurial City. In turn, they are hosting One Week KC, a nine-day 
celebration of innovators and job creators in our region that will 
encourage community entrepreneurs to come together, get inspired, learn 
and connect.
  The final day of this celebration, June 26th, will be known as 
Entrepreneur Day at the K. Over 40 local mayors from both Missouri and 
Kansas will attend this event at Kauffman Stadium to declare June 26th 
as Entrepreneur Day in their cities. Entrepreneurs are the foundation 
of the American economy, and I applaud our local leaders for 
recognizing and encouraging entrepreneurism in our region.
  Mr. Speaker, I ask that you join me in the celebration of Kansas 
City's entrepreneurs. I

commend the Greater Kansas City Chamber of Commerce and the Kauffman 
Foundation for leading the initiative to make Kansas City America's 
Most Entrepreneurial City, and I look forward to demonstrating the 
strength of entrepreneurship in our region to the rest of the nation.
