An extension of appreciation to the hard working court reporters for their dedication of capturing the spoken word within the walls of the capitol. Certainly a very challenging job.
On behalf of the National Court Reporters Association, we would like to thank the Congressional court reporters in both the U.S. House of Representatives and in the U.S. Senate who did their typically amazing job capturing the official record of yesterday’s proceedings in the U.S. Capitol. No one could have predicted the events of yesterday, but we are grateful that our colleagues were not injured in the events that unfolded. These reporters were front and center capturing the record during the events of Jan. 6 and were ushered to safe places within the Capitol complex during the breach of the Capitol.
The reporters of the House and Senate concluded their duties after 3:30 a.m. this morning. NCRA and the entire court reporting community thank them for their service to our country. Their mission is to capture history as it unfolds, and they do so with skill and professionalism that reflect the highest standards of our profession.
