SENATE JOINT RESOLUTION No. 99
STATE OF NEW JERSEY
DATED: FEBRUARY 21, 2019
The Senate State Government, Wagering, Tourism and Historic Preservation Committee reports favorably Senate Joint Resolution No. 99.
The attack on the United States on September 11, 2001 resulted in the deaths of thousands of innocent people, injury to countless others, and the disruption of innumerable lives. These events brought to the forefront the courageous deeds performed by members of the Armed Forces, police officers, firefighters, and emergency services personnel, and caused the citizens of the State of New Jersey to take notice of their acts of heroism.
This joint resolution designates September 11th of each year as "Heroes Day," to salute the contributions of members of the Armed Forces, police officers, firefighters, and emergency services personnel to the security and well-being of this State, and requires the Governor to issue a proclamation and call upon all citizens of the State to celebrate this day with appropriate activities and programs.
