Cesar Estrada Chavez Study Act

Floor Speech

Location: Washington, DC

CESAR ESTRADA CHAVEZ STUDY ACT -- (House of Representatives - July 10, 2007)


Mrs. BLACKBURN. Mr. Speaker, I yield myself such time as I may consume.

The majority has adequately explained the bill, Mr. Speaker, and I note that during the full committee consideration of this bill the minority was assured that this act was in no way to be construed as advancing any effort to establish a national holiday honoring Cesar Chavez. Further, the majority gave assurances that this bill was not going to be used to promote House Resolution 76, which urges the establishment of such a holiday. With this understanding, we will not object to the consideration of this measure.

Mr. Speaker, I have no additional speakers, and I yield back the balance of my time.
