                       Monday, December 31, 2012

  Mr. LANCE. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to honor the life of Elizabeth 
Cox of Summit, New Jersey. Betty gave her life to public service in New 
Jersey and her contributions will long be remembered.
  Betty was elected to the New Jersey General Assembly in 1972 to serve 
an unexpired term. Betty would continue four decades of public service 
as a founding member of the Women's Political Caucus, as a master poll 
worker for the Union County Board of Elections, as a staff member in 
the Department of Community Affairs and as an officer in the Summit, 
Union County and New Jersey Republican Committees.
  Betty will be remembered as a dedicated public servant, a 
parliamentarian and a champion of women's issues. I was honored to call 
Betty a friend and colleague.
