"President George H.W. Bush is an inspiration to all Texans," said Congressman August Pfluger. "He dedicated his life to serving our country in an incredible number of capacities—as a decorated naval aviator who saw combat in World War II, U.S. Representative for the 7th Congressional District of Texas, United States Ambassador to the United Nations, Director of Central Intelligence, Vice President, and President of the United States, as well as many impactful initiatives in his personal life. He left an incredible legacy and his work continues. It is an honor to commemorate June 12th, the 100th Birthday of President George H.W. Bush."

George H. W. Bush was the 41st President from 1989 to 1993 and brought to the White House a "dedication to traditional American values and a determination to direct them toward making the United States a kinder and gentler nation in the face of a dramatically changing world," according to information from the Whitehouse. 

He passed away on November 30, 2018, at the age of 94.

“George H.W. Bush was a loving father, grandfather, and great-grandfather, and he was a devoted public servant who fought to defend our freedoms and bravely led our nation at the end of the Cold War and the fall of the Berlin Wall,” said Senator John Cornyn. “President Bush showed us that you can be both a good man and a great leader, and I’m proud to honor this true statesman on what would have been his 100th birthday.”

In the House, the Resolution was co-sponsored by Representatives Kay Granger (TX-12), Pete Sessions (TX-17), Jake Ellzey (TX-6), Morgan Luttrell (TX-8), Roger Williams (TX-25), Brian Babin (TX-36), Pat Fallon (TX-04), Michael McCaul (TX-10), Randy Weber (TX-14), Lizzie Fletcher (TX-07), Dan Crenshaw (TX-02), Nathaniel Moran (TX-01), Ronny Jackson (TX-13), Beth Van Duyne (TX-24), Lance Gooden (TX-05), Dr. Michael Burgess (TX-26), Keith Self (TX-03), Jodey Arrington (TX-19), Don Bacon (NE-2), Stephanie Bice (OK-05), Mike Lawler (NY-17), Brian Fitzpatrick (PA 01), Sam Graves (MO-06), and Byron Donalds (FL-19).
