COMMENDING FELLOW CONGRESSMAN CHRIS COX OF CALIFORNIA
(Ms. ROS-LEHTINEN asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 minute and to revise and extend her remarks.)
Ms. ROS-LEHTINEN. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to commend one of our colleagues, the gentleman from California (Mr. Cox). Tomorrow he will go before the Senate Committee on Financial Services, Housing, and Urban Affairs to have his nomination considered for the Securities and Exchange Commission, and I would like to extend congratulations to him and his family. I have every confidence that in his new capacity, Chris will do an excellent job.
Chris has made such a positive and lasting impression during his tenure here in the House, and he will be sorely missed.
Since 1988, Chris has made countless contributions, especially as the first chairman of the Committee on Homeland Security. In this capacity, he oversaw a momentous and much-needed reorganization of the Nation's security authority.
I feel privileged to have worked with such a distinguished Member of Congress, and I wish him continued success in all of his future endeavors.
This work is in the public domain in the United States because it is a work of the United States federal government (see 17 U.S.C. 105).
