   Expressing the sense of the House of Representatives that public 
service employees should be commended for their dedication and service 
         to the Nation during Public Service Recognition Week.

Whereas Public Service Recognition Week provides an opportunity to honor and 
        celebrate the commitment of individuals who meet the needs of the Nation 
        through work at all levels of government;
Whereas over 20,000,000 men and women work in government service in every city, 
        county, and State across the Nation and in hundreds of locations abroad;
Whereas Federal, State, and local officials perform essential services that the 
        Nation relies upon every day;
Whereas the United States is a great and prosperous nation, and public service 
        employees have contributed significantly to its greatness and 
        prosperity;
Whereas the Nation benefits daily from the knowledge and skills of these highly 
        trained individuals;
Whereas public service employees--

    (1) help the Nation recover from natural disasters and terrorist 
attacks,

    (2) fight fires and crime,

    (3) deliver the mail,

    (4) teach and work in our public schools,

    (5) deliver Social Security and Medicare benefits,

    (6) fight disease and promote better health,

    (10) build and maintain our roads and bridges,

    (11) provide vital strategic and support functions to our military 
personnel,

    (12) keep the Nation's economy stable,

    (13) defend our freedom, and

    (14) advance our Nation's interests around the world;

Whereas public service employees at the Federal, State, and local level are our 
        first line of defense in maintaining homeland security;
Whereas public service employees at every level of government are hardworking 
        individuals who are committed to doing a good job, regardless of the 
        circumstances;
Whereas Federal, State, and local government employees have risen to the 
        occasion and demonstrated professionalism, dedication, and courage while 
        fighting the war against terrorism;
Whereas the men and women serving in the Armed Forces of the United States, as 
        well as those Federal employees who provide support for their efforts, 
        contribute greatly to the security of the Nation and of the world;
Whereas May 5 through 11, 2003, has been designated Public Service Recognition 
        Week to honor America's Federal, State, and local government employees; 
        and
Whereas Public Service Recognition Week will be celebrated through job fairs, 
        student activities, and agency exhibits: Now, therefore, be it
    Resolved, That the House of Representatives--
            (1) commends America's Federal, State, and local government 
        employees for their outstanding contributions to our country;

        their unwavering dedication and spirit;
            (3) honors those public service employees who have laid 
        down their lives in service to this Nation;
            (4) calls upon a new generation of workers to consider a 
        career in public service; and
            (5) encourages efforts to promote public service careers at 
        all levels of government.
