H.Res. 1112 expected to be considered on the floor of the House on Tuesday, March 2, 2010, under a motion to suspend the rules, requiring a two-thirds vote for passage. The legislation was introduced by Rep. Glenn Thompson (R-PA) on February 25, 2010.
H.Res. 1112 would resolve that the House of Representatives:
• "Congratulates the Pennsylvania State University IFC/Panhellenic Dance Marathon (THON) on its continued success in support of the Four Diamonds Fund at Penn State Hershey Children's Hospital; and
• "Commends the Pennsylvania State University students, volunteers and supporting organizations for their hard work putting together another recordbreaking THON."
According to the resolution's findings, the Penn State IFC/Panhellenic Dance Marathon, known as THON, is the largest student-run philanthropy in the world, with 700 dancers, more than 300 supporting organizations, and more than 15,000 volunteers involved in the annual event.
