H. CON. RES. 77

To prohibit any political demonstrations on hallowed ground of national cemeteries.

IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES

March 30, 1993

Mr. SUNDQUIST (for himself and Mr. TANNER) submitted the following concurrent resolution; which was referred to the Committee on Veterans’ Affairs


CONCURRENT RESOLUTION

To prohibit any political demonstrations on hallowed ground of national cemeteries.

Whereas Arlington National Cemetery is the final resting place for those who have proudly served in defense of their country;

Whereas these honored dead are due the full measure of our Nation’s respect and gratitude; and

Whereas it cheapens their service and demeans their memory to make Arlington National Cemetery a prop for political demonstrations: Now, therefore, be it

    Resolved by the House of Representatives (the Senate concurring), That Arlington National Cemetery be placed permanently off-limits for political demonstrations and displays, and that the grounds of Arlington National Cemetery be closed to those who would use the grounds as a backdrop for protest.
