                              S. Res. 582

       Whereas Michael P. DiSilvestro will retire from the United 
     States Senate after serving for over 30 years as the first 
     Director of the Office of Senate Security, and in the Senate 
     for over 37 years total, including numerous postponements of 
     his retirement when the needs of the Senate prevailed upon 
       Whereas his career has been dedicated to protecting and 
     facilitating the Senate's ability to review, discuss, and act 
     upon the most sensitive national security information in our 
       Whereas he represented the Senate boldly and effectively to 
     the executive branch of Government as it delivered critical 
     documents and briefings for the consideration and oversight 
     of the Senate;
       Whereas his selfless dedication to the Senate's 
     constitutional function has made him a leader in planning and 
     executing continuity programs for the Senate and Congress as 
     a whole;
       Whereas, at great peril, he remained on the front line of 
     service to the Senate in times of heinous attacks on Senate 
       Whereas he has upheld the highest standards and traditions 
     of the Senate as a universally trusted voice of nonpartisan 
     professionalism and expertise; and
       Whereas he has earned the respect and esteem of the Senate: 
     Now, therefore, be it
       Resolved, That, effective May 23, 2020, as a token of the 
     appreciation of the Senate for his long and faithful service, 
     Michael P. DiSilvestro is hereby designated as Director 
     Emeritus of Senate Security of the United States Senate.
