RESOLUTION

Recognizing the National Association of Journeymen Linemen and the profession of Journeymen Linemen and the contributions of these brave men and women to protect public safety and expressing support for designation of April 18, 2012, as National Journeymen Linemen Day.

Whereas the profession of Journeymen Linemen is steeped in tradition and family, personally and professionally; Whereas Journeymen Linemen are first responders during a storm or catastrophic event which means these brave men and women are required to make a scene safe for other public safety heroes; Whereas Journeymen Linemen work with thousands of volts of electricity high atop power lines 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, to keep electricity working; Whereas Journeymen Linemen often must work far from their families to protect the Nation against dangerous electrical currents; Whereas Journeymen Linemen put their lives on the line for their community daily with very little recognition or appreciation regarding the danger of their work; and Whereas April 18, 2012, would be an appropriate date to designate as National Journeymen Linemen Day: Now, therefore, be it Resolved, That the House of Representatives-- (1) recognizes the efforts of Journeymen Linemen in keeping the power on and protecting public safety; and (2) supports the designation of National Journeymen Linemen Day. <all>
