  (Mr. DOLD asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 
minute and to revise and extend his remarks.)
  Mr. DOLD. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to recognize AmpliVox Sound 
Systems, a small business in Northbrook, Illinois.
  The Northbrook Chamber of Commerce recently named AmpliVox Business 
of the Year for 2016. AmpliVox has been providing the community with 
innovative sound systems since the 1950s and has grown to become an 
industry leader. In the past 5 years, the company's revenue grew by 
over 60 percent.
  Most admirably, throughout this growth, the company has not lost 
sight of the community it serves. CEO Don Roth sets an example for 
small businesses across the Nation through his integrity, vision, and 
emphasis on community involvement.
  Small businesses like AmpliVox are truly the backbone of our economy 
and our communities. Unfortunately, backwards Federal regulations are 
making it harder and harder for small businesses to thrive and create 
more jobs.
  I am committed to doing all that I can in this body to support small 
businesses and get more people back to work.
  Congratulations, again, to AmpliVox Sound Systems and Don Roth. Thank 
you for representing the Northbrook community with passion and
