US to appoint Dutch-American day 3/16/2007
AMSTERDAM - US Congressman Peter Hoekstra has managed to get bipartisan support in the House of Representatives for the introduction of a special day to commemorate US-Dutch relations.

Congress unanimously passed a resolution on Tuesday expressing its desire that “a day should be established as Dutch-American Friendship Day to celebrate the historic ties of the United States and the Netherlands.”

Pete Hoekstra, a Republican serving for the Second Congressional District of Michigan, was born in Groningen, the Netherlands, and immigrated to Michigan with his family at the age of 3. This makes him one of the few members of Congress who was not born in the United States.

The district has the nation''s largest concentration of Dutch-Americans.
