Last week, a resolution Chairman Royce has cosponsored to call for Congressional recognition of the Lunar New Year was introduced. The measure, authored by U.S. Representative Grace Meng (D-NY), encourages Congress to recognize the cultural and historical significance of Lunar New Year and express its deepest respect for Asian-Americans and all individuals throughout the world who celebrate the holiday.
