H.Res. 1428 is expected to be considered on the floor of the House on Tuesday, November 16, 2010, under a motion to suspend the rules, requiring a two-thirds majority vote for passage. The legislation was introduced by Rep. Yvette D. Clarke (D-N.Y.) on June 9, 2010.
H.Res. 1428 would resolve that the House of Representatives recognizes the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens on its 100th anniversary as the preeminent horticultural attraction in the borough of Brooklyn and for its longstanding commitment to environmental stewardship and education for the City of New York.
According to the resolution’s findings, Brooklyn Botanic Garden opened to the public in 1910.
