    BYRNE TO THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES (Mr. BACHUS asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 minute.) Mr. BACHUS. Mr. Speaker, we welcome Bradley Byrne as the newest member of the Alabama delegation. We also welcome his wife, Rebecca, who is in the balcony with his four children: Patrick, Colin, Kathleen, and Laura.

    Bradley asked me--and I think all of the Members will identify with him--do you ever get over the thrill of walking in this Chamber? And the answer is, No, you never do.

    Let me say this: we like Bradley, the delegation, and I think you know how important that is. He has a wonderful wife. We are very excited about his being here. He brings a wealth of understanding. He comes from an area with natural resources--very important in Armed Services. He served as chancellor of our 2-year college system. He can bring some insight to educational reform.

    He succeeds one of our closest friends--of all of us on both sides-- Jo Bonner. Although we miss Jo, we welcome Bradley. That makes up for some of the loss of Jo, and I think you are going to get to where you know and appreciate this gentleman who has joined us today.

    At this time, I yield to the gentlelady from Alabama (Ms. Sewell).
