H.Res. 16 is expected to be considered on the floor of the House on Tuesday, September 29, 2009, under a motion to suspend the rules, requiring a two-thirds vote for passage. The resolution was introduced by Rep. Judy Biggert (R-IL) on January 6, 2009.
H.Res. 16 would resolve that the House of Representatives:
• "Supports the goals and ideals of "National Life Insurance Awareness Month"; and
• "Calls on the Federal Government, States, localities, schools, nonprofit organizations, businesses, and the citizens of the United States to observe the month with appropriate programs and activities."
According to the resolution's findings, numerous groups supporting life insurance have designated September 2009 as "National Life Insurance Awareness Month".
