2d Session

H. RES. 806

IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES

October 2, 2012

submitted the following resolution; which was referred to the Committee on Financial Services

RESOLUTION

Expressing the sense of the House of Representatives regarding the recognition of homelessness in the United States.

Whereas 2011 data show that an estimated 636,017 people experienced homelessness in the United States on any given night; and

Whereas depressed wages, stagnant unemployment, unrelenting housing cost burden, and the lagging pace of the economic recovery escalates the odds of a person experiencing homelessness: Now, therefore, be it

That it is the sense of the House of Representatives that—

(1)

public and private institutions should continue to work together to eliminate homelessness; and

(2)

the United States Government should recognize the outstanding efforts of institutions and individuals who work tirelessly to assist those in their community who suffer from homelessness.
