104 STAT. 5274 PROCLAMATION 6130—MAY 7, 1990 During National Tourism Week, we recognize those Americans who earn their hvelihood in the travel and tourism industry and gratefully acknowledge their contributions to our Nation's economy. We also recognize the productive partnership among members of the travel and tourism industry, labor, and local. State, and Federal government officials. Most important, perhaps. National Tourism Week reminds us of the many rewards of travel and tourism, especially its role in fostering personal friendships and international understanding and cooperation. The Congress, by Senate Joint Resolution 153, has designated the week beginning on the second Sunday in May 1990 as "National Tourism Week" and has authorized and requested the President to issue a proclamation in observance of that week. NOW, THEREFORE, I, GEORGE BUSH, President of the United States of America, do hereby proclaim the week beginning May 13, 1990, and ending May 19, 1990, as National Tourism Week. I invite the people of the United States to observe the week with appropriate programs, ceremonies, and activities. IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this third day of May, in the year of our Lord nineteen hundred and ninety, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and fourteenth. GEORGE BUSH Proclamation 6130 of May 7, 1990 Asian/Pacitic American Heritage Month, 1990 By the President of the United States of America A Proclamation The history of Asian and Pacific Americans in the United States is a long and honorable one. Determined to uphold America's promise of freedom and opportunity for all, generations of Asian and Pacific men and women have helped this Nation to grow and prosper. A century and a half ago, many of these Americans contributed to the economic development of the United States through their labors on the plantations of Hawaii and in the mines of California. The important role played by many Asian and Pacific Americans in the building of the first transcontinental railroad is well documented; their determination and hard work are well known. With diligent effort and abiding faith in the American Dream, Asian and Pacific Americans have steadily advanced, earning ever greater respect and admiration from their fellow citizens. Today, men and women of Asian and Pacific ancestry continue to make many important contributions to our Nation. In science, commerce, education, and the arts, Asian and Pacific Americans are not only sharing with us their unique talents and ideas, but also setting high standards of achievement. For example, through their commitment to academic excellence and their superlative accomplishments in many areas of study, Asian and Pacific American students have provided a model for the Nation.
