POHNPEI, Palikir (FSM Information Service): November 26, 2001 - The first measures approved by the Convention after its organization November 12, were three Resolutions, expressing gratitude and appreciation to the FSM President, H.E. Leo A. Falcam, and the FSM Vice President Redley Killion, (CD.R. No. 01-02); to Speaker Jack Fritz and Members of the 12th FSM Congress, (D.R. No. 01-3), and to the FSM Supreme Court Chief Justice Andon L. Amaraich, (D.R. No. 01-3), for making their staff, offices and equipment available for use of the Convention. The three resolutions were introduced by Chuuk Delegate Wesley Simina on Friday, November 23, and assigned to the Committee of the Whole (COW). This morning the COW reported and recommended them for adoption, which the Convention did.

Taking into consideration the need for Committees to finish their business which are usually earlier than the plenary in the mornings, Floor Leader Naiten O. Phillip of Pohnpei moved for recess until 11:00 a.m. The Convention then recessed at 12:07 p.m.
