 SENATE RESOLUTION 115--RECOGNIZING THE REALTORS LAND INSTITUTE ON THE 
                    OCCASION OF ITS 75TH ANNIVERSARY

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

                              S. Res. 115

       Whereas, in 1944, the REALTORS  Land Institute was founded 
     by 20 land specialists who met at the Drake Hotel in Chicago, 
     Illinois, to establish a national organization that would 
     provide education, information, marketing opportunities, and 
     broker networking to enhance the ability of their members to 
     conduct business as recognized professional land use 
     specialists and, through collective action, preserve private 
     property rights;
       Whereas, as of 2019, the REALTORS  Land Institute has been 
     an affiliate of the National Association of REALTORS  for 75 
     years;
       Whereas, in 2019, the REALTORS  Land Institute celebrates 
     75 years of serving land owners, users, and realtors 
     throughout the United States and Canada;
       Whereas the members of the REALTORS  Land Institute have 
     developed international marketing capabilities and networks 
     throughout the world;
       Whereas the REALTORS  Land Institute is comprised of 
     members who subscribe to a strict code of ethics and to just 
     and equitable principles in real estate transactions;
       Whereas the REALTORS  Land Institute encourages continuing 
     education and rewards members who complete an extensive 
     education program and service to the land industry with a 
     national designation of Accredited Land Consultant (commonly 
     known as ``ALC''); and
       Whereas the REALTORS  Land Institute is a national 
     professional trade association, dedicated to advancing the 
     effective use of the most precious commodity in the United 
     States, land: Now, therefore, be it
       Resolved, That the Senate--
       (1) recognizes the REALTORS  Land Institute on the occasion 
     of its 75th anniversary; and
       (2) respectfully requests that the Secretary of the Senate 
     transmit a copy of this resolution to the REALTORS  Land 
     Institute.
