Pelosi: Resolution on Michael Jackson unnecessary

WASHINGTON – House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says she sees no need for a House resolution in praise of Michael Jackson.

Pelosi, D-Calif., says Jackson was a great performer, but she thinks the resolution is unnecessary.

She said at a news conference Thursday that lawmakers could honor Jackson in speeches in the House. But she said a resolution would open up Jackson’s life to “contrary views that are not necessary at this time.”

Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, a Texas Democrat, has proposed the resolution in Jackson’s honor.

Such a resolution is a nonbinding but symbolic expression from lawmakers.
