S. RES. 433


Recognizing linemen, the profession of linemen, and the contributions of these brave men and women who protect public safety, and expressing support for the designation of April 18, 2016, as “National Lineman Appreciation Day”.


IN THE SENATE OF THE UNITED STATES

April 20, 2016

Mr. Tillis submitted the following resolution; which was considered and agreed to


RESOLUTION

Recognizing linemen, the profession of linemen, and the contributions of these brave men and women who protect public safety, and expressing support for the designation of April 18, 2016, as “National Lineman Appreciation Day”.

    Whereas the profession of linemen is steeped in personal, family, and professional tradition;

    Whereas linemen are often first responders during storms and other catastrophic events, working to make the scene safe for other public safety heroes;

    Whereas linemen must work high atop power lines 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, to keep electricity flowing;

    Whereas linemen play a vital role in the economy of the United States by maintaining and growing the energy infrastructure of the United States;

    Whereas linemen must often work under dangerous conditions while separated from their families to keep schools and businesses open;

    Whereas linemen put their lives on the line every day with little recognition from the community regarding the danger of their work; and

    Whereas April 18, 2016 would be an appropriate date to designate as “National Lineman Appreciation Day”: Now, therefore, be it

Resolved, That the Senate—

(1) recognizes the efforts of linemen in keeping the power on and protecting public safety; and

(2) supports the designation of “National Lineman Appreciation Day”.
