    WATT (Mr. WATT asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 minute and to revise and extend his remarks.) Mr. WATT. Mr. Speaker, this is definitely the last time I will be addressing this House. As my colleague, David Price, has indicated, I have been confirmed to a new position as regulator and director of the Federal Housing Finance Agency.

    I just wanted to take a moment to express to my colleagues how much of an honor it has been to be a part of this body, and to grow and learn and share with my colleagues from all across the Nation. It has been a great honor, and I thank all of them for the expressions in the last few days, and I look forward to working with them in the new position that I will be assuming. I thank you.

    And, of course, we have already acknowledged my wife in the gallery. I thank her. And with that, Mr. Speaker, I yield back the balance of my time once and for all.
