    MALONEY of New York asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 minute.) Mrs. CAROLYN B. MALONEY of New York. Mr. Speaker, I would like to express my profound appreciation to the Speaker for his recent acknowledgement that he expects the James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Reauthorization Act to be part of the omnibus bill.

    I thank Leader Pelosi for her steadfast commitment and leadership in support of this important lifesaving legislation.

    I am grateful to every single Democratic Member of this Congress, all of whom are cosponsors of this important legislation, and the many Republicans who are sponsors of this bill. All of them have helped us to live up to our commitment that: ``We will never forget.'' Heroic first responders and survivors of 9/11--men and women from all 50 States and nearly every Congressional District--will now be able to breathe a little easier, and will certainly have a much happier holiday season when this bill is finally across the finish line. This is how Congress can, and should, work in a bipartisan way, doing the right thing more often.

    Happy holidays and Happy New Year. Now, when do we vote on this important lifesaving legislation.
