WHEREAS, The Senate of the State of Texas is pleased to
  recognize the electrical utility line and generation workers of
  Texas for their heroic efforts during the catastrophic 2021
  winter storm; and
         WHEREAS, When the winter storm struck the State of Texas on
  the weekend of February 13 and 14, arctic blasts dropped
  temperatures to single digits across the state, and by late
  Sunday night, problems with the state's power grid had left
  millions of Texans without electrical power; and
         WHEREAS, Electrical utility line and generation workers
  throughout Texas responded by working tirelessly around the
  clock in extremely adverse conditions to restore power to the
  state's communities; and
         WHEREAS, Due to their courage, hard work, and fortitude,
  lives were saved and facilities and homes eventually were
  restored to order; it is truly fitting that the line and
  generation workers receive special recognition for the vital
  role they played in helping Texans to recover from this
  devastating event; now, therefore, be it
         RESOLVED, That the Senate of the State of Texas, 87th
  Legislature, hereby pay tribute to the electrical utility line
  and generation workers of Texas and extend to them sincerest
  gratitude for their perseverance and success in restoring
  electrical power to the people of Texas; and, be it further
         RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution be prepared in
  honor of their outstanding service.
