109 STAT. 2056 PROCLAMATION 6858—DEC. 13, 1995 Proclamation 6858 of December 13, 1995 Wright Brothers Day, 1995 By the President of the United States of America A Proclamation Today, the United States aviation industry helps to drive our economy and provides business and recreational opportunities to our citizens that were unthinkable just a century ago. Our reliance on air transit grows each year, challenging the aviation community and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to meet new safety and operational demands. Our air transportation system, already the safest and most efficient in the world, continues to improve. In fact, efforts are underway to craft reforms that enhance the efficiency of the FAA so that America's leadership in air transportation, begun with the Wright brothers' historic flight on December 17, 1903, can continue well into the next century. The Congress, by a joint resolution approved December 17, 1963 [77 Stat. 402; 36 U.S.C. 169), has designated December 17 of each year as "Wright Brothers Day" and has authorized and requested the President to issue annually a proclamation inviting the people of the United States to observe that day with appropriate ceremonies and activities. NOW, THEREFORE, I, WILLIAM J. CLINTON, President of the United States of America, do hereby proclaim December 17, 1995, as Wright Brothers Day. IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this thirteenth day of December, in the year of our Lord nineteen hundred and ninety- five, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and twentieth. WILLIAM J. CLINTON Proclamation 6859 of December 13, 1995 To Modify the Tari£f-Rate Quota on Italian-Type Cheeses From Poland By the President of the United States of America A Proclamation 1. On May 17, 1995, the United States and Poland signed a Record of Understanding Between Poland and the United States of America on Agricultural Items, which provides for an increase in the allocation to Poland of the in-quota quantity of the tariff-rate quota on Italian-type cheeses. 2. Section 404(d)(3) of the Uruguay Round Agreements Act ("the URAA")(19 U.S.C. 3601(d)(3)) authorizes the President to allocate the in-quota quantity of a tariff-rate quota for any agricultural product among supplying countries or customs areas and to modify any allocation as the President determines appropriate.
