                        Tuesday, April 12, 2016

  Mr. YOUNG of Iowa. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to recognize and 
congratulate Mike Barratt for being named a 2016 Forty Under 40 honoree 
by the award-winning central Iowa publication, Business Record.
  Since 2000, Business Record has undertaken an exhaustive annual 
review to identify a standout group of young leaders in the Greater Des 
Moines Area that are making an impact in their communities and their 
careers. Each year, forty up-and-coming community and business leaders 
under 40 years of age are selected for this prestigious honor based on 
a combined criteria of community involvement and success in their 
chosen career field. The 2016 class of Forty Under 40 honorees will 
join an impressive roster of 640 business leaders and growing.
  Mike serves as vice president and financial consultant at Charles 
Schwab where he has been helping his clients manage their wealth and 
reach their financial goals. He focuses on changing the lives of 
individuals through financial freedom and firmly believes that once you 
change one life, you can change many. Not only is Mike successful 
professionally but he is deeply involved in the community. He serves as 
a board member at the Food Bank of Iowa and works tirelessly to 
eradicate food insecurity in his community.
  Mr. Speaker, it is a profound honor to represent leaders like Mike in 
the United States Congress and it is with great pride that I recognize 
and applaud him for utilizing his talents to better both his community 
and the great state of Iowa. I ask that my colleagues in the United 
States House of Representatives join me in congratulating Mike on 
receiving this esteemed designation, thanking those at Business Record 
for their great work, and wishing each member of the 2016 Forty Under 
40 class a long and successful career.
