Proclamation

By the Governor of Alabama

WHEREAS, transportation is a vital force in our society. Transportation moves the nation’s goods, delivers the products of our farms and factories, and enables us to live and work where we choose; and

WHEREAS, transportation affords us the opportunity for leisure travel, thus educating
our people in the customs and ways of life in areas which would otherwise be foreign to
us; and

WHEREAS, transportation knits local communities together and allows them to expand
and extend their commercial and economic boundaries; and

WHEREAS, transportation enriches our economy and strengthens our defense; and

WHEREAS, as Alabama continues to grow, effective transportation takes on great
importance for local travelers, as well as, for those who travel across our region; and

WHEREAS, National Transportation Week in Alabama will be devoted to the
recognition of transportation officials who continue to design and plan for safer and
more efficient modes of travel and methods to improve the capabilities and capacity of
our transportation network:

NOW, THEREFORE, I, Kay Ivey, Governor of Alabama, do hereby proclaim the week of May 15th through May 21st, 2017, as

National Transportation Week

in the State of Alabama.

Given Under My Hand and the Great Seal of the Office of the Governor at the State Capitol in the City of Montgomery on the 15th day of May 2017.

Kay Ivey

Governor
