SACRAMENTO – Senator Patricia Bates (R-Laguna Niguel) recently introduced Senate Concurrent Resolution 3 which would mark June 12, 2019, and every June 12th annually as President George H.W. Bush Day. Our nation’s 41st Commander-in-Chief was born on June 12, 1924.
SCR 3 is currently in the Senate Rules Committee.
President Bush passed away on November 30, 2018, leaving behind a legacy which included the George H.W. Bush Presidential Library Foundation and the Points of Light Foundation, a charitable organization promoting volunteerism.
“Our 41st President served our country well and was willing to reach across the political aisle to engage with leaders of both parties to get things accomplished for our nation. True to who he was, President Bush lived a life of helping others by establishing his charitable organization to advocate volunteer service.
“In the words of former President Obama, ‘America has lost a patriot and humble servant in George Herbert Walker Bush. While our hearts are heavy today, they are also filled with gratitude. Not merely for the years he spent as our forty-first President, but for the more than 70 years he spent in devoted service to the country he loved.’
“I’m proud to author SCR 3 which will commemorate the accomplishments of President Bush and dedicate June 12th now and forever in his memory,” said Senator Bates.
Senator Patricia Bates (R-Laguna Niguel) represents the 36th Senate District in the California Legislature, which covers South Orange County, North San Diego County and Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton. She is the Senate Republican Leader.
