Congress Introduces Resolutions to Recognize June as RV Centennial Celebration Month

Both chambers of Congress introduced resolutions this month that would officially recognize June, 2010 as RV Centennial Celebration Month.


The Senate resolution (S. Res. 410), introduced February 4 by Senator Evan Bayh (D-IN) with Senator Richard Lugar (R-IN) as an original cosponsor, states “That the Senate supports and recognizes the goals and ideals of ‘RV Centennial Celebration Month’ to commemorate 100 years of enjoyment of recreation vehicles in the United States; and encourages the people of the United States to celebrate this anniversary by taking part in recreation vehicle vacations.”


In the House, Congressman Joe Donnelly (D-IN) introduced H. Res. 1073 with Congressman Mark Souder (R-IN) as an original cosponsor.  The text of the House resolution is almost identical to the Senate resolution text. Each resolution includes the clause  “this homegrown industry, including recreation vehicle manufacturers, suppliers, dealers, and campgrounds, employs hundreds of thousands of people in the Nation in good-paying jobs across all 50 states.” The full text of each resolution is viewable by clicking on the bill numbers above.


RVIA’s Government Affairs Department worked with House and Senate staffers to have the resolutions introduced and are now working to secure additional cosponsors to the resolutions, with the goal of having both chambers of Congress endorse the RV Centennial Celebration Month Resolution before June.
