HONORING THE NATIONAL COURT REPORTERS ASSOCIATION'S COURT REPORTING AND 
                            CAPTIONING WEEK

                                 ______
                                 

                           HON. JOHN SHIMKUS

                              of illinois

                    in the house of representatives

                       Monday, February 11, 2019

  Mr. SHIMKUS. Madam Speaker, I rise in honor of the National Court 
Reporters Association's Court Reporting and Captioning Week.
  The NCRA supports and promotes excellence among those who capture and 
convert spoken words to text. These skills provide a foundation of 
public transparency for our courts, government hearings, and even our 
very own House of Representatives.
  Court Reporting and Captioning Week is a nationwide initiative. It 
brings awareness to the importance of the work that court reporters and 
captioners do. Without the records they provide, assuring 
accountability and oversight over government institutions would be 
impossible. For this reason, court reporters, captioners, and the NCRA 
stand as part of the foundation of our democracy.
  Madam Speaker, I commend the NCRA for its work and the work of its 
members, and I congratulate the NCRA on celebrating Court Reporting and 
Captioning Week.
