    Expressing support for the designation of Journeyman Lineman Recognition Day.

    Whereas journeymen linemen provide a vital service on a daily basis;

    Whereas journeyman linemen put their lives on the line every day to assure safe and reliable power for the American people;

    Whereas journeyman linemen work at heights and in close proximity to energized electric lines, and in emergencies they often work extremely long hours under sometimes dangerous conditions to restore power;

    Whereas Henry Miller died of injuries sustained while troubleshooting an electrical outage; and

    Whereas there should be a day to honor those industry first responders who have given their lives in the line of duty along with those who provide skillful service in times of local or national crisis: Now, therefore, be it

Resolved, That the House of Representatives—

(1) supports the designation of Journeyman Lineman Recognition Day;

(2) honors and recognizes the contributions of the countless individuals who often place themselves in harm’s way to serve their communities; and

(3) encourages the people of the United States to observe Journeyman Lineman Recognition Day with appropriate reflection.
