                         TRIBUTE TO HAROON KHAN

  Mr. JOHNSON of South Dakota. Mr. President, I wish to recognize and 
to extend my thanks and appreciation to Haroon Azam Khan.
  For almost two decades, I have been truly fortunate to have had 
Haroon on my side.
  Haroon's personal story is uniquely American. While his parents 
Mohammad Azam and Anjum Khan immigrated to the United States in the 
1960's, the first members of Haroon's family arrived in the United 
States in 1906 and settled in Willows, CA.
  Haroon's interest in government started early, first as an intern in 
the district office of my friend and former colleague Congressman Bob 
Matsui and then as an intern in The White House.
  After graduating from the University of California at Berkeley, 
Haroon joined my first Senate campaign and then worked with me as my 
finance and political director on each of my reelection efforts. He 
also worked with my colleagues Senator Dianne Feinstein and Senator 
Chris Dodd in the same capacity.
  Eventually, after working in the private sector, I invited Haroon to 
work for me as deputy staff director of the Senate Committee on 
Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs.
  It has been a pleasure to watch Haroon grow both personally and 
professionally, and it is with sincere gratitude that I would like to 
thank Haroon for his years of dedicated friendship, counsel and
