presented  SCR 18.    He stated  that over  much  of the  Western

He stated that  Raoul Wallenberg is listed in  The Guinness World

person in  recorded history.   Senator Dyson said  the concurrent                                                               
resolution would  set aside  just one  day for  this recognition.                                                               
He opined that  holding up heroes for all to  emulate is a worthy                                                               
effort.                                                                                                                         
                                                                                                                                
9:27:13 AM                                                                                                                    
                                                                                                                                
REPRESENTATIVE JOHANSEN  said he  did not  know about  this story                                                               
until reading the information before  the meeting.  He said Raoul                                                               
Wallenberg was  an amazing person  and he stated support  for SCR
18, but said it cannot possibly encompass all that the man did.                                                                 
                                                                                                                                
9:28:14 AM                                                                                                                    
                                                                                                                                
REPRESENTATIVE GRUENBERG said  he is a co-sponsor of  HCR 18, and                                                               
he asked  if there is  something that could  be done to  get U.S.                                                               
Congress to make this a national day.                                                                                           
                                                                                                                                
SENATOR DYSON offered his understanding  that currently there are                                                               
other efforts underway to do  that very thing, and similar things                                                               
are  being  done  in  other  states.   As  a  point  of  personal                                                               
interest, he relayed that [the  late former] U.S. Congressman Tom                                                               
Lantos  of  California  was  one  of the  men  rescued  by  Raoul                                                               
Wallenberg.    He  said   he  thinks  Representative  Gruenberg's                                                               
suggestion is a good one, and he said he would follow up on it.                                                                 
                                                                                                                                
REPRESENTATIVE GRUENBERG said former  U.S. Congressman Lantos may                                                               
be the only Holocaust survivor to have served in Congress.                                                                      
                                                                                                                                
SENATOR  DYSON said  he thinks  that is  true.   He said  he just                                                               
received word that there is a resolution in Congress.                                                                           
                                                                                                                                
REPRESENTATIVE GRUENBERG  suggested adding language in  SCR 18 to                                                               
urge Congress to proclaim this as a national day.                                                                               
                                                                                                                                
SENATOR DYSON  said he  would prefer  no changes  be made  to the                                                               
language  of  the  proposed  concurrent  resolution,  because  of                                                               
timing.                                                                                                                         
                                                                                                                                
9:30:17 AM                                                                                                                    
                                                                                                                                
REPRESENTATIVE   PETERSEN  said   he  appreciates   the  proposed                                                               
legislation, and said he is willing to make a motion.                                                                           
                                                                                                                                
9:30:39 AM                                                                                                                    
                                                                                                                                
REPRESENTATIVE  JOHANSEN  remarked that  there  would  be no  big                                                               
heroes without great adversity,  and this resolution is important

REPRESENTATIVE KELLER said he has  read that Americans are not as
