    McCOLLUM of minnesota in the house of representatives Thursday, December 11, 2014 Ms. McCOLLUM. Mr. Speaker, today I rise to pay tribute to the career of Congressman Rush Holt.

    During his time in the House, Congressman Holt has been a leader on protecting the environment and his voice on this important issue will be sorely missed. A research physicist by training, his constituents are known to boast bumper stickers proclaiming ``My Congressman IS a Rocket Scientist.'' I know we have all benefited from Rush's intelligence and wisdom during his time in office.

    I was fortunate to have the opportunity to work with Rush on protecting our environment. His perspective as a scientist has enriched the debate over conserving our natural resources and seeking clean sources of alternative energy. I wish him the best in his new role as CEO of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, a cause that is close to his heart.

    Mr. Speaker, please join me in honoring the service of Congressman Rush Holt in the United States House of Representatives.
