                           HON. ROBERT W. NEY

                                of ohio

                    in the house of representatives

                      Thursday, November 14, 2002

  Mr. NEY. Mr. Speaker, on the occasion of his retirement at the end of 
this year, we rise to thank Mr. Henry (Bud) Collins for his outstanding 
service to the U.S. House of Representatives over the past 27 years.
  Over the years, Bud has made significant improvements to the Voice 
and Data Network programs of the U.S. House of Representatives. He 
began his career with the House on December 10, 1973, and has served 
this great institution in numerous capacities, most notably in House 
Information Resources (HIR) Communications positions within the Chief 
Administrative Officer. During the past three years, Bud has served as 
the Communications Infrastructure Team Leader. In this position, he has 
directed voice and data wiring installations to every entity of the 
House, Architect of the Capitol, and Congressional Budget Office. Bud's 
breadth of knowledge of the wiring standards and the House building 
construction has enabled rapid, effective wiring installations. These 
installations were fundamental in improving the information flow for 
Member and Committee operations.
  On behalf of the entire House community, we extend congratulations to 
Bud for his many years of dedication, and his outstanding contributions 
to the communications and wiring infrastructure installations for the 
House. We wish Bud and his wife Harriet many wonderful years in 
fulfilling their retirement dreams.
