                            JOINT RESOLUTION

  To designate May 2, 1994, through May 8, 1994, as ``Public Service 
                          Recognition Week''.

Whereas public employees at every level of government faithfully serve their 
        fellow Americans, and there are now nine million employees in city and 
        county government, four million employees in State government, and over 
        four million Federal civilian and military employees;
Whereas Americans are aware of the many contributions public employees have made 
        to the quality of their lives, in occupations that run the gamut from 
        astronauts to zoologists, including scientists, police officers, 
        teachers, doctors, forest rangers, engineers, food inspectors, 
        researchers, and foreign service agents, among others;
Whereas the Nation should value a professional civil service whose highest 
        principle is one of patriotism, whose foremost commitment is to 
        excellence, and whose experience and expertise are a national resource 
        to be used and respected;
Whereas the millions of workers who serve the Nation are men and women of 
        knowledge, ability, and integrity who deserve to be recognized for their 
        dedicated service; and
Whereas designating a week to honor these employees will provide a dual 
        opportunity to pay tribute to our public employees and to inform the 
        American people about the scope and importance of public service, 
        including the range of employment opportunities available to our young 
        people: Now, therefore, be it
    Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United 
States of America in Congress assembled, That the week of May 2 through 
May 8, 1994, is designated as ``Public Service Recognition Week''. The 
President is authorized and requested to issue a proclamation calling 
upon the people of the United States to observe such week with 
appropriate programs, ceremonies, and activities.
