 ANNOUNCEMENT OF MEMBERS TO ATTEND FUNERAL OF THE HON. ``JAKE'' PICKLE

  (Mr. THOMAS asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 
minute and to revise and extend his remarks.)
  Mr. THOMAS. Mr. Speaker, the gentleman from New York (Mr. Rangel) and 
I are in the process of putting together the potential list for flying 
to the Jake Pickle funeral tomorrow at 4 p.m. It is very short notice, 
and it will be an imposition on the funeral site. We are in contact 
now.
  What we need to know are how many Members, beyond the Texas 
delegation and the Committee on Ways and Means, have a very strong 
interest in attending the Jake Pickle funeral? We would leave with 
ample time to get there prior to the 4 p.m. funeral time, and then we 
would immediately return. Any Member who has an interest, would they 
call the Committee on Ways and Means and ask for Allison Giles, 53630. 
We need to pull together an approximate number of Members who have a 
strong interest in attending the Jake Pickle funeral.
