    WHEREAS, The families and employers of California reservists called to active duty are also making significant sacrifices; and

    WHEREAS, Californians have the hope of a peaceful world, free of war; now, therefore, be it

    RESOLVED BY THE ASSEMBLY OF THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA, That the Assembly proclaims its support for our troops and our fervent hope that hostilities in Iraq end as soon as possible, and that America's servicemen and servicewomen return home quickly, safely, and uninjured; and be it further

    RESOLVED, That the Assembly of the State of California urges the President of the United States of America to pursue all efforts to ensure that any American captured during these hostilities is treated in accordance with the Geneva Convention relative to the Treatment of Prisoners of War; and be it further
