Senate Approves Sinema’s Bipartisan Resolution Honoring Public Servants Working to Overcome COVID-19

May 11, 2020

WASHINGTON – The U.S. Senate today approved a bipartisan resolution from Arizona senior Senator Kyrsten Sinema and Republican James Lankford (Okla.) that honors Arizona’s public servants and their work to overcome COVID-19 by designating May 3rd – May 9th as Public Service Recognition Week. The bipartisan resolution commends public servants—including Arizona servicemembers and government employees—for their contributions to Arizona and the United States.
“I’m proud the Senate came together across party lines today to honor Arizona’s public servants who care for our veterans, protect our borders, and deliver critical care for all Arizonans as we overcome the challenges from COVID-19,” said Sinema.
“Public Service Recognition Week gives us an opportunity to thank the countless government federal employees across Oklahoma and the nation,” said Lankford. “In the midst of fighting the COVID-19 pandemic, we see those serving in our public healthcare, military, federal agencies, airports, post offices and other vital jobs that help our state and nation operate efficiently and continue to support their fellow Americans. We are tremendously grateful for federal workers and their commitment to serve. Today and every day, thank you for all you do to serve your neighbors. America could not succeed without you.”
