MEMORIALIZING Governor Kathy Hochul to proclaim
September 10-16, 2023, as Truck Driver Appreciation
Week in the State of New York

WHEREAS, It is the custom of this Legislative Body to recognize
official weeks that are set aside to highlight the vital role and value
of the men and women who deliver the essential goods and resources
needed by all citizens of New York State; and

WHEREAS, Attendant to such concern, and in full accord with its
long-standing traditions, this Legislative Body is justly proud to
memorialize Kathy Hochul to proclaim September 10-16, 2023, as Truck
Driver Appreciation Week in the State of New York, in conjunction with
the observance of National Truck Driver Appreciation Week; and

WHEREAS, Nearly every aspect of daily life is made possible because
a truck driver delivered the goods and resources people need; and

WHEREAS, These 3.5 million professional men and women not only
deliver our goods safely, securely, and on time, they also keep our
highways safe; and

WHEREAS, Professional truck drivers actively represent their
industry daily on the nation's highways; they are an untapped resource
in spreading the trucking industry's message of safety, essentiality and
professionalism; and

WHEREAS, America's Road Team participates in events across the
country to reinforce the trucking industry's commitment to safety,
sustainability and professionalism; and

WHEREAS, The America's Road Team Captains also do ride-a-longs with
policy makers and members of the media to show them first-hand what it
takes to be safe on our highways; and

WHEREAS, Truck Driver Appreciation Week takes on a special
significance considering the crucial role truck drivers have played
during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic; and

WHEREAS, Truck Driver Appreciation Week is an important time for all
New Yorkers to pay respect and thank all the professional truck drivers
for their hard work and commitment in undertaking one of our economy's
most demanding and important jobs; now, therefore, be it

RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause in its deliberations to
memorialize Kathy Hochul to proclaim September 10-16, 2023, as Truck
Driver Appreciation Week in the State of New York; and be it further

RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be
transmitted to The Honorable Kathy Hochul, Governor of the State of New
York.
