WHEREAS, Furthermore, in the Presidential Proclamation, President
Reagan called for all people of the United States to observe these
events with appropriate ceremonies and activities; and

gral to the economic vitality of the state, the region and the nation;
and
WHEREAS, Approximately nine percent of all the milk produced by United
States dairy farmers is used to produce ice cream, contributing signif-
icantly to the economic well-being of the nation's dairy industry; and
WHEREAS, It is the sense of this Legislative Body to honor and pay
tribute to the dairy industry and officially recognize July 19, 2015 as
Ice Cream Day in the State of New York; now, therefore, be it
RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause in its deliberations to
memorialize Governor Andrew M. Cuomo to proclaim July 19, 2015 as Ice
Cream Day in the State of New York in conjunction with the observance of
