WHEREAS, as a highly technical career field, stenographic court reporting and captioning requires a combination of skills and knowledge to capture the spoken word into text; and

WHEREAS, court reporters are present locally and federally, preserving the words and actions that take place not only in the courtroom, but also in Congress and during state legislative session; and

WHEREAS, captioners are responsible for the closed captioning seen on television, at sporting stadiums and other community and educational settings, bringing information to millions of deaf and hard-of-hearing Americans daily; and

WHEREAS, Court Reporting and Captioning Week will be marked with educational events nationwide, including presentations at high schools across the country about career opportunities and community demonstrations such as producing transcripts of veterans' oral histories;

NOW, THEREFORE, I, STEVE SISOLAK, GOVERNOR OF THE STATE OF NEVADA, do hereby proclaim the week of February 8-15, 2020 as

COURT REPORTING AND CAPTIONING WEEK IN NEVADA
