CONGRESSWOMAN ELISE STEFANIK
H.Con.Res. 206 is expected to be considered on the floor of the House on Monday, December 7, 2009, under a motion to suspend the rules, requiring a two-thirds vote for passage. The legislation was introduced by Rep. Paul C. Broun (R-GA) on October 28, 2009.
H.Con.Res. 206 would resolve that the Congress:
• "Commends the soldiers, their families, and the civilian personnel at Fort Gordon for their service and dedication to the United States;
• "Recognizes the contributions of Fort Gordon to Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom; and
• "Recognizes Fort Gordon for its role as a pivotal communications training installation for the United States Army Signal Corps now and in the future."
According to the resolution's findings, Fort Gordon is the home for training most of the personnel within the Department of Defense who operate and maintain satellites and continued to train signal troops of allied and foreign countries.
