  Mrs. MILLER of Michigan. Mr. Speaker, on behalf of myself and Mr. 
Brady of Pennsylvania, our Ranking Minority Member, I would like to 
take this opportunity to recognize Christine Davenport who is leaving 
the House at the end of this year after serving in the Office of the 
General Counsel for more than ten years, first as an Assistant Counsel 
and then as a Senior Assistant Counsel. We will miss her.
  Ms. Davenport provided frequent and invaluable legal advice and 
representation to the Committee on House Administration, as well as to 
Members, officers and other committees of the House more generally. Our 
staff came to rely on her expertise and guidance, particularly in 
connection with their internal oversight activities. Over the years, 
Ms. Davenport played a significant role in safeguarding the legal and 
institutional interests of the House of Representatives.
  Ms. Davenport served the House with great distinction. On behalf of 
the Committee on House Administration, we thank Ms. Davenport for her 
devoted service, and extend to her our very best wishes for her 
continued success.
