H.Res. 1463 is expected to be considered on the floor of the House on Tuesday, July 20, 2010, under a motion to suspend the rules, requiring a two-thirds vote for passage. The legislation was introduced by Rep. Thomas Perriello (D-VA) on June 22, 2010.
H.Res. 1463 would resolve that the House of Representatives:
- “Supports the goals and ideals of Railroad Retirement Day as designated by the Railroad Retirement Board;
- “Recognizes the important contributions that the rail industry, rail workers, and retirees make to the national transportation system;
- “Urges the people of the United States to recognize such a day as an opportunity to celebrate the importance of the railroad retirement system to America's working families.”
