    FRANKEL of Florida asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 minute and to revise and extend her remarks.) [[Page H1230]] Ms. FRANKEL of Florida. Mr. Speaker, Dana Haverman from my home State of Florida is frightened.



    Despite the fact that she got her first job at age 15, despite the fact that she worked continuously her entire adult life, despite the fact that at age 60 she lost a long-time job because of this country's economic downturn, despite the fact that she has been looking for a job every day and has not found one, despite all these facts, this Congress has failed to extend emergency unemployment insurance that would give her and thousands of Floridians a little bit of help in paying their electricity and water bills until they find their next job.

    Mr. Speaker, let us vote today to extend relief deserved by America's job seekers.

    Mr. Speaker, Dana Haverman from my home State of Florida is frightened.
