WASHINGTON- On Thursday February 6, America\’s 40th President, Ronald Wilson Reagan, will turn 92. The Ronald Reagan Legacy Project joins his countless admirers across the country, and around the world, in wishing him a happy and healthy birthday.

In addition, the following states have had one or both of their legislative bodies submit a resolution to the RRLP:

South Carolina
West Virginia

Several more states plan to pass resolution on or before February 6.

"President Reagan changed the face of all America," said taxpayer advocate Grover Norquist, President of the Ronald Reagan Legacy Project. "In a time of economic stagnation and advancing world communism, Ronald Reagan re-energized the economy, won the cold war, brought freedom to millions of oppressed people around the world, and made America proud and confident again. The nation owes a great debt to this larger-than-life figure. I commend all the governors and legislators who have dedicated February 6th to the legacy of Ronald Reagan."

The RRLP is committed to preserving the legacy of one of America\’s greatest presidents. Among it\’s aims, the Project seeks to name at least one monument to President Reagan in each of America\’s counties, and in nations that were once Communist. Grover Norquist, the RRLP President is a long time Washington insider. He is available for interviews about Ronald Reagan\’s legacy and the goals of the project.
