    NEWHOUSE asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 minute.) Mr. NEWHOUSE. Madam Speaker, as a newly elected Congressman from the State of Washington, I rise to mark the 50th anniversary of the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory in my congressional district. I congratulate all current and former lab workers and their families. Their commitment to excellence is apparent from the contributions the lab has made both to the local community and to our Nation.



    This world-class facility is key to the long-term growth of the Tri- Cities because of the leading role the lab plays [[Page H114]] in national security, clean renewable American energy, efforts to clean up our Nation's defense nuclear waste, chemistry, and more.

    Originally created for the Manhattan Project, the lab has adapted to address our Nation's most pressing needs. I look forward to visiting the lab in the coming weeks to congratulate them in person, and I am committed to providing the support the lab needs to continue serving our Nation for another 50 years.

    Congratulations to the PNNL family.
