  Mr. RICE of South Carolina. Madam Speaker, I include in the Record 
the following proclamation:
  Whereas, it is the privilege and duty of the American people to 
commemorate the two hundred and thirty-second anniversary of the 
drafting of the Constitution of the United States of America by the 
Constitutional Convention; and
  Whereas, it is fitting and proper to officially recognize this 
magnificent document and the anniversary of its creation; and
  Whereas, public law 915 guarantees the issuing of a proclamation each 
year by the President of the United States of America designating 
September 17 through 23 as Constitution Week;
  Now, therefore, I, Tom Rice by virtue of the authority vested in me 
as Representative of the Seventh District of the State of South 
Carolina, do hereby proclaim September 17 through 23, 2019 to be 
Constitution Week and ask our citizens to reaffirm the ideals the 
Framers of the Constitution had in 1787.
