Minnesota House of Representatives passes 2011 International Year of Chemistry Resolution
Date:3/14/2011

MINNEAPOLIS, March 11, 2011 The Minnesota House of Representatives has passed a bi-partisan resolution recognizing 2011 as the International Year of Chemistry (IYC), according to the American Chemical Society (ACS).

Rep. Phyllis Kahn (DFL-Minneapolis) and Rep. Duane Quam (R-Byron) co-sponsored the resolution, and the North Star State is the first U.S. legislative body to back the United Nation's declaration of 2011 as the International Year of Chemistry.

"Members of the Minnesota Government and Legislative Affairs Committee and Minnesota Local Section of ACS were delighted to attend the House floor session last week in which the IYC resolution was read into the record," said Matt Mortensen, Chair of the Minnesota ACS Government and Legislative Affairs (GALA) Committee. "We are so glad that Minnesota has state representatives that recognize the importance of chemistry and the sciences in general, even in such tough economic times. The diversity of our delegation, which included researchers, professors, K-12 educators and quality and regulatory professionals, shows just how many roles chemists play in our state's economy."

The resolution by the Committee on Rules and Legislative Administration of the House of Representatives of the State of Minnesota:

  1. "Recognizes 2011 as the International Year of Chemistry;
  2. Recognizes the necessity of educating the public on the merits of the sciences, including chemistry and promoting interest in these fields in the youth of the nation;
  3. Supports the goals of International Year of Chemistry; and
  4. Encourages the people of the great state of Minnesota to participate in the International Year of Chemistry through appropriate recognition, programs, activities and ceremonies to call attention to the importance of chemistry to our well-being, present and future."
