14   and national security. Furthermore, 80% of future jobs will require educational background in science

19   more than half of the nation’s economic growth. Economists say that no other investment benefits the

21
22   WHEREAS: As of 2008, the percentage of Oklahoma students who earned a 3 (or higher) on the AP
23   exams was 3% lower than the national average in math and 2% lower in science. Furthermore, as of August
24   2009, 71% of Oklahoma students who took the ACT generated math (9% lower) and science scores that
25   were lower than the national average; 32% of high school students who took the ACT are ready for college-
26   level math (11% lower than the national level) and 23% for college-level science (5% lower).
27
28   WHEREAS: As of 2008, 35% of Oklahoma science teachers are certified to teach (which is 19% lower
29   than the national percentage); 36% are certified to teach math (which is 13 % lower).
30

32   NOW, THEREFORE LET IT BE RESOLVED BY THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES AND

34
35   Section 1: Upon the passage of this resolution, it is requested that Oklahoma pass legislation to raise the

 9
10   A JOINT RESOLUTION TO MANDATE THAT THE UNITED STATES POSTAL
11   SERVICE WAIVE THE FEE REQUIRED TO OBTAIN A POST OFFICE BOX
12   FOR ALL U.S. CITIZENS RENDERED HOMELESS.
13
14   WHEREAS: The use of mail is a necessity that is in all practicality denied to
15   homeless Americans in the United States. They are given one “general delivery”
16   location in each city (usually the primary post office.) This keeps the majority of
17   homeless from being able to reach “general delivery” areas without adequate
18   transportation, which in most cases is unavailable to them.
19
20   WHEREAS: The lack of mail access also re-entrenches the endless cycle of
21   poverty and homelessness that individuals are trapped in. On most job
22   applications you must give a valid address to receive mail, creating a barrier for
23   the homeless to restart their lives. They are also kept from the majority of social
24   service benefits that the federal government offers, because of the need of
25   access to mail sent from the services. Programs that are unavailable due to this
26   include but are not limited to: Temporary Assistance for Needy Families, Food
27   Stamps, Education Programs for students, Medical Services, Earned Income Tax
28   Credit, and Supplemental Security Income. The list of services not provided is
29   immense.
30
31   WHEREAS: The lack of mail services not only infringes rights to social services,
32   but also impedes their ability to interact in a social environment. They are not
33   given ability to send or receive letters at will to friends or families.
34
35   WHEREAS: Finally, the most outlandish problem with the current postal system
36   is that without an address or area to receive mail, you are not able to vote in the
37   United States. This is a blatant problem with democracy in the United States.
38
39
40   NOW, THEREFORE LET IT BE RESOLVED BY CONGRESS:
41
42   Section 1: The United States Congress Should Mandate a Fee Waiver for all Homeless U.S. Citizens to
43                    Obtain a P.O. Box.
