BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, That the Chief Clerk of the House of Representatives and Secretary of the Senate shall be jointly responsible for facilitating such a purpose with the enlisted assistance of active and former legislators, staff members, lobbyists and news people so that the Legislative Old Timers program will provide a permanent connection of the past with the present for the betterment of the State of Washington.
