The Infant Crib Safety Act April 4, 2008
Ellen Tauscher, D-CA
"I originally introduced this legislation in 1999 at the request of the Danny Foundation, a national nonprofit organization established after the tragic death of Danny Lineweaver of Alamo, Calif. At the age of 23 months, Danny was injured while trying to climb out of his crib. He caught his shirt on a decorative knob on the corner post of his crib and hanged himself. Though his mother was able to perform CPR the moment she found him, Danny lived in a semi-comatose state for nine years and died in 1993."
Honoring Euless Trinity High School For Winning The 5A Division I Football State Championship January 15, 2008
Kenny Marchant, R-TX
"The Trinity Trojans’ 13-10 win over Converse Judson Rockets in the San Antonio Alamodome gave the program its second State title in 3 years. It is believed that defenses win championships and this game was no exception as the Trojans held the Rockets scoreless during the second half. Despite the fact that all of the scoring took place in the first and second quarters, the second half was just as thrilling as the defense stopped the Converse Judson’s offensive attack while the Trojans’ tireless running offense wore down the Rockets and controlled the clock. Under Coach Steve Lineweaver‘s tenure, Euless Trinity has amassed an 88-16 record and has won 14 of its last 16 playoff games."
In Recognition Of The Achievements Of The Danny Foundation September 27, 2005
Ellen Tauscher, D-CA
"None of The Danny Foundation’s work could have been accomplished without John and Rose Lineweaver. John and Rose, the founders of The Danny Foundation, have dedicated their lives to preventing other families from suffering a needless tragedy similar to the crib accident that eventually took their son Danny’s life. Their passion for the well-being of infants across our country is extraordinary and worthy of significant praise and thanks."
