          RECOGNIZING PUERTO RICAN BAR ASSOCIATION OF FLORIDA

  (Ms. ROS-LEHTINEN asked and was given permission to address the House 
for 1 minute and to revise and extend her remarks.)
  Ms. ROS-LEHTINEN. Mr. Speaker, I would like to take a minute today to 
recognize a remarkable south Florida organization, the Puerto Rican Bar 
Association of Florida, that will soon be celebrating its 10th-year 
anniversary in Miami.
  Over the past 10 years, the association has been dedicated to public 
service in my home State of Florida, preserving the civil rights, the 
political rights and responsibilities of Puerto Ricans as Americans, as 
well as Floridians.
  The Puerto Rican Bar Association of Florida also serves as an 
educational

tool for undergraduate, graduate, and law students through a Moot Court 
Competition, which will be held this year in conjunction with the 
association's historic anniversary.
  I congratulate its president, Richard Robles, for his impressive work 
and wish everyone in the association continued success on behalf of the 
Puerto Rican community of Florida.
