  Mrs. MILLER of Michigan. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to congratulate 
and recognize Bernard E. Beidel, an employee of the Chief 
Administrative Officer of the U.S. House of Representatives. Mr. Beidel 
was honored with the 2013 Lifetime Achievement Award from the Employee 
Assistance Professionals Association (EAPA). The Lifetime Achievement 
Award honors an EAPA member who has made a significant contribution to 
Employee Assistance Programs (EAP), the EA profession, and to 
individuals over an extended period of time.
  Mr. Beidel has been a leader in providing EAP services to 
organizations and currently serves as Director of the Office of 
Employee Assistance. He has held this role for over 20 years providing 
direct EAP services to members and staff of the U.S. House of 
Representatives since its inception in 1991.
  I am proud to stand before you and the Nation on Mr. Beidel's behalf 
to recognize the importance of his public service, and honor his award 
for lifetime achievement and his contributions to the House community.
  We wish Bern much happiness in fulfilling his retirement dreams.
