[Pages H8707-H8708] From the Congressional Record Online through the Government Publishing Office [www.gpo.gov] AMERICA'S GROWING AGING POPULATION (Mr. TRONE asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 minute and to revise and extend his remarks.) Mr. TRONE. Madam Speaker, today I rise to praise the House for unanimously passing the Dignity in Aging Act. This act includes two bipartisan bills that I led to respond to challenges facing a growing aging American population: social isolation and younger onset Alzheimer's. As I heard from seniors and their families in my district at my seniors workshop, we need to do more to support caregivers, improve economic opportunities for older individuals, and ensure Americans can age with dignity, security, and quality of life. This act does that. This week Democrats and Republicans worked together in Washington to pass the Dignity in Aging Act. That is a win for Congress, a win for seniors, and a win for the American people. [[Page H8708]] ____________________
