         WHEREAS, The Senate of the State of Texas is pleased to
  recognize State Trooper Franklin Randolph for his lifesaving
  actions while serving in the line of duty; and
         WHEREAS, Franklin Randolph is a Texas Department of Public
  Safety trooper stationed in Burnet County; on November 7, 2016,

  low-water crossing; upon arriving at the scene, he found the

  braved the treacherous water and was able to pull the driver

  Randolph held on to the victim and the rope as the deputy pulled
  them both to safety; and
         WHEREAS, Trooper Randolph is a highly respected officer
  who has diligently upheld the department's mission to protect and
  serve the citizens of Texas; he has manifested uncommon
  dedication in managing his far-reaching responsibilities, and he
  is admired by colleagues and area residents for his bravery and
  perseverance; and
         WHEREAS, The Texas Department of Public Safety and the
  Texas Public Safety Commission honored Trooper Randolph for his
  exceptional act of heroism with a Lifesaving Award at a ceremony
  in Austin on June 15, 2017; now, therefore, be it
         RESOLVED, That the Senate of the State of Texas, 85th
  Legislature, 1st Called Session, hereby commend State Trooper
  Franklin Randolph for his quick thinking and courage in the line
  of duty and extend to him best wishes in all his future endeavors;
  and, be it further
         RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution be prepared for
  him as an expression of esteem from the Texas Senate.
        President of the Senate
        I hereby certify that the
    above Resolution was adopted by
    the Senate on August 3, 2017.
