[Congressional Bills 103th Congress] [From the U.S. Government Printing Office] [S.J. Res. 11 Referred in House (RFH)] 103d CONGRESS 1st Session S. J. RES. 11 _______________________________________________________________________ IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES March 29, 1993 Referred to the Committee on Post Office and Civil Service _______________________________________________________________________ JOINT RESOLUTION To designate May 3, 1993, through May 9, 1993, as ``Public Service Recognition Week''. Whereas public employees at every level of government faithfully serve their fellow Americans--9 million employees in local government, 4 million employees in State government, and over 3 million civilian workers and 2 million military employees in the Federal Government; 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 our country 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 3 through May 9, 1993, 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 the week with appropriate programs, ceremonies, and activities. Passed the Senate March 26 (legislative day, March 3), 1993. Attest: WALTER J. STEWART, Secretary.
