  Ms. COLLINS (for herself, Mr. Obama, Mr. Domenici, Mr. Thomas, and 
Mr. Cochran) submitted the following resolution; which was considered 
and agreed to:

                               S. Res. 90

       Whereas the students who have participated in the United 
     States Senate Youth Program (referred to in this preamble as 
     the ``Senate Youth Program'') over the past 45 years were 
     chosen for their exceptional merit and interest in the 
     political process;
       Whereas the students demonstrated outstanding leadership 
     abilities and a strong commitment to community service and 
     have ranked academically in the top 1 percent of their 
     States;
       Whereas the Senate Youth Program alumni have continued to 
     achieve unparalleled educational and professional success and 
     have demonstrated a strong commitment to public service on 
     the local, State, national, and global levels;
       Whereas the Senate Youth Program alumni have demonstrated 
     excellent qualities of citizenship and have contributed to 
     the Nation's constitutional democracy, both professionally 
     and in volunteer capacities, and have made an indelible 
     impression on their communities;
       Whereas each State department of education has selected 
     outstanding participants for the Senate Youth Program;
       Whereas the Department of Defense, Department of State, and 
     other Federal departments, as well as Congress, have offered 
     support and provided top level speakers who have inspired and 
     educated the students in the Senate Youth Program; and
       Whereas the directors of the William Randolph Hearst 
     Foundation have continually made the Senate Youth Program 
     available for outstanding young students and exposed them to 
     the varied aspects of public service: Now, therefore, be it
       Resolved, That the Senate congratulates, honors, and pays 
     tribute to the more than 4,500 exemplary students who have 
     been selected, on their merit, to participate in the United 
     States Senate Youth Program between 1962 and 2007.
