  Mrs. MILLER of Michigan. Mr. Speaker, Ranking Member Robert Brady and 
I rise today to congratulate and recognize the outstanding employees of 
the Officers (Clerk of the House, Sergeant at Arms, and Chief 
Administrative Officer) and the Inspector General of the U.S. House of 
Representatives who have reached the milestone of 25 years of service 
to the U.S. House of Representatives, as well as the recipients of the 
House Employee Excellence Award.
  The House's most important asset is its dedicated and exceptional 
employees, whose work, which is often behind the scenes, is vital in 
keeping the operations and services of the House running smoothly and 
efficiently. The employees we recognize today are acknowledged and 
commended for their hard work, dedication, professionalism, support of 
House Members and their staffs and constituents, and for their 
contributions day-in and day-out to the overall operations of the 
House. These employees have a wide range of responsibilities and skills 
that support the legislative process, ensure the security of the 
institution, maintain our technology and service infrastructure, and 
contribute to a more effective and efficiently operating House support 
structure. They have accomplished many great things in a wide range of 
activities, and the House of Representatives and its Members, staff, 
and the American public is better served because of them.
  We recognize and honor the individuals named below for 25 years of 
dedicated service to the House. Collectively, this group has provided 
325 years of service to the U.S. House of Representatives:
  David E. Bailey, Office of the Chief Administrative Officer;
  Cephas L. Carter, Office of the Clerk;
  Antoinette P. Freeman, Office of the Chief Administrative Officer;
  Anthony T. Howard, Office of the Chief Administrative Officer;
  Carlos Leon-Campos, Office of the Chief Administrative Officer;
  Michael P. Mallon, Office of the Chief Administrative Officer;
  William B. Plaster, Office of the Clerk;
  Vincent H. Plowden, Office of the Chief Administrative Officer;
  Wallace A. Simpson, Office of the Sergeant at Arms;
  Susan E. Sneden, Office of the Chief Administrative Officer;
  Jerome B. Williams, Office of the Chief Administrative Officer;
  Waverly Y. Williams, Office of the Chief Administrative Officer;
  Diane E. Wilson, Office of the Chief Administrative Officer.
  We also recognize and congratulate four House employees for receiving 
the Employee Excellence Award. This is a merit-based award, given to 
one employee from each House Officer organization, and the Office of 
Inspector General. Selected employees exhibited outstanding overall job 
performance and displayed a willingness to go above and beyond the call 
of duty for their organization throughout the last year. We honor the 
individuals named below for receiving this prestigious award.
  Russell H. Gore, Office of the Clerk;
  Joyce L. Hamlett, Office of the Sergeant at Arms;
  Christopher Jordan, Office of the Chief Administrative Officer;
  Susan E. Simpson, Office of Inspector General.
  On behalf of the entire House community, I extend our congratulations 
and once again recognize and thank these employees for their 
professionalism and commitment to the U.S. House of Representatives as 
a whole, and in particular to their respective House Officers and the 
Inspector General. Their long hours and hard work are invaluable, and 
their years of unwavering service, dedication, and commitment to the 
House set an example for their colleagues and other employees who will 
follow in their footsteps. I celebrate our honorees, and I am proud to 
stand before you and the nation on their behalf to recognize the 
importance of their public service.
