1973 General Resolution

WHEREAS, many of the humanitarian programs initiated in the public interest in the United States over the last decade and more are in danger of curtailment or termination because of executive impoundment of funds voted by elected representatives of the people; and

WHEREAS, the loss of the programs would jeopardize the possibility for a higher quality of life for many citizens of the United States;

BE IT RESOLVED: That the 1973 General Assembly of the Unitarian Universalist Association deplores the impoundment of appropriated funds and urges that the President and/or the Congress of the United States act to restore impounded funds for programs for public health, environmental protection, day care centers, housing, urban development, community action, emergency employment assistance, research, education, libraries and all welfare services.
