H.Res. 338 is being considered on the floor under suspension of the rules, requiring a two-thirds majority vote for passage. This legislation was introduced by Rep. Tom Latham (R-IA) on April 21, 2009.
H.Res. 338 resolves that the House of Representatives:
• "supports the goals and ideals of National Community College Month; and
• "congratulates the Nation's community colleges, and their students, governing boards, faculty, and staff, for their contributions to education and workforce development, and for their vital role in ensuring a brighter, stronger future for the Nation."
The American Association of Community Colleges, the Association of Community College Trustees, and more than 1,100 community colleges nationwide recognize April as National Community College Month.
