Carolyn Maloney, D-NY 14th

Mrs. MALONEY. Mr. Speaker, I do not have any further speakers. I congratulate Mr. Snyder for his leadership on this legislation and Mr. Renzi, and their leadership on many other issues.

I yield back the balance of my time, and I urge the unanimous support of this important bill.

3:38 PM EST

Rick Renzi, R-AZ 1st

Mr. RENZI. Mr. Speaker, I yield myself such time as I may consume.

In summation, I do not deserve any credit for this. The credit really deserves to go to the gentleman from Arkansas (Mr. Snyder), the gentlewoman from New York (Mrs. Maloney), and the delegation from Arkansas who really pulled together the House in a bipartisan fashion. I want to thank the gentleman for pulling together a community, too, down in Arkansas and allowing them to rally around the unique history of their land.

Mr. Speaker, I yield back the balance of my time.

3:39 PM EST

Bob Ney, R-OH 18th

Mr. NEY. Mr. Speaker, I move to suspend the rules and agree to the resolution (H. Res. 633) honoring Helen Sewell on the occasion of her retirement from the House of Representatives and expressing the gratitude of the House for her many years of service.

3:49 PM EST

Bob Ney, R-OH 18th

Mr. NEY. Mr. Speaker, I yield such time as he may consume to the distinguished gentleman from Pennsylvania (Mr. Weldon), and I want to thank him for bringing this resolution to the floor. This was his idea on behalf of the House to do it, and we certainly appreciate it.

(Mr. WELDON of Pennsylvania asked and was given permission to revise and extend his remarks.)

4:05 PM EST

Bob Ney, R-OH 18th

Mr. NEY. Mr. Speaker, I yield myself such time as I may consume.

Mr. Speaker, I am just going to conclude by thanking the Members for being here today, our ranking members. This could not have happened without Congresswoman JUANITA MILLENDER-MCDONALD being here and taking her time to give tribute, and, of course, the other Members, Congresswoman SHEILA JACKSON-LEE and Congressman Gilchrest. Especially, of course, I want to thank Congressman Weldon of Pennsylvania for doing this, for giving Helen the honor that she so deserves.

Obviously, from everything that we have heard today, I think the whole Nation can understand the feeling we have for Helen and how we miss her being here. Of course, when I conclude, I am going to ask for the RECORD to be kept open because Members are going to want to submit statements for the record to Helen to give her the honor she so deserves. So we wish Helen the best.

Mr. Speaker, I yield 2 minutes to the gentleman from California (Mr. Dreier).
