A RESOLUTION
Recognizing February 6, 2011, as Ronald Reagan Day.


BE IT RESOLVED BY THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES OF THE STATE OF OHIO:

       WHEREAS, President Ronald Wilson Reagan, a man of humble background, worked throughout his life serving freedom and advancing the public good, having been employed as an entertainer, union leader, corporate spokesman, Governor of California, and President of the United States; and

       WHEREAS, President Reagan served with honor and distinction for two terms as the 40th President of the United States of America. In his second presidential election, he earned the confidence of three-fifths of the electorate and was victorious in 49 of the 50 states, a record unsurpassed in the history of American presidential elections; and

       WHEREAS, In 1981, when Ronald Reagan was inaugurated President, he inherited a disillusioned nation shackled by rampant inflation and high unemployment; and

       WHEREAS, During his presidency, he worked in a bipartisan manner to enact his bold agenda of restoring accountability and common sense to government, which led to an unprecedented economic expansion and opportunity for millions of Americans; and

       WHEREAS, President Reagan's commitment to an active social policy agenda for the nation's children helped lower crime and drug use in our neighborhoods; and

       WHEREAS, President Reagan's commitment to our armed forces contributed to the restoration of pride in America, strengthened the country's values and those cherished by the free world, and prepared America's armed forces to meet the challenges of the 21st century; and

       WHEREAS, Additionally his vision of "peace through strength" led to the end of the Cold War and the ultimate demise of the Soviet Union, guaranteeing basic human rights for millions of people; and

       WHEREAS, February 6, 2011, is the 100th anniversary of Ronald Reagan's birth and the seventh since his passing; therefore be it

       RESOLVED, That we, the members of the House of Representatives of the 129th General Assembly of Ohio, recognize February 6, 2011, as Ronald Reagan Day in Ohio and encourage all Ohioans to participate in its observance; and be it further

       RESOLVED, That the Clerk of the House of Representatives transmit duly authenticated copies of this resolution to the news media of Ohio.
