  Mr. GENE GREEN of Texas. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to honor the 
Galveston Bay Foundation for their 25 years of dedication and continual 
service to preserving, protecting, and enhancing Galveston Bay and its 
surrounding communities.
  Since 1987, the Galveston Bay Foundation has demonstrated a lasting 
commitment to the conservation of our environment and community through 
the institution of essential and effective environmental programs. 
These programs continue to collectively improve the environment and 
well-being throughout our community. In doing so, the foundation has 
established a reputation of unyielding excellence and as a result 
earned accolades such as the Texas Environmental Excellence Award, a 5-
Star Award from the Environmental Protection Agency, and many more.
  Through conscious action the Galveston Bay Foundation continues to 
promote environmental responsibility and provide a safe coastal 
environment that enhances the welfare of the community, economy, and 
environment. The continuous service of the Galveston Bay Foundation has 
made an enduring impact on our community and for their continued 
efforts I am proud to support the Galveston Bay Foundation.
  I congratulate the board of trustees, staff, and volunteers at the 
Galveston Bay Foundation for all of their hard work and dedication to 
the conservation of the Galveston Bay and surrounding communities.
