BREAK IN TRANSCRIPT

Ms. JENKINS. Mr. Speaker, I rise today in support of H.R. 3801, an important piece of bi-partisan legislation that will strengthen our borders and strike an important blow against those who would try and smuggle drugs into this country.

But I also rise to honor H.R. 3801's sponsor, my long time friend Congresswoman GABBY GIFFORDS.

I have known Gabby a long time. In fact, our friendship goes back long before either one of us considered running for Congress to when we spent time together during our involvement with the Aspen Institute's Rodel Fellowship and traveled to Vietnam together with the American Council of Young Political Leaders.

I have truly missed seeing Gabby in the halls of the House and will continue to miss her in the years to come. Whi
le I am sad to hear she is moving on, I wish her well as she continues her remarkable recovery.

Though she is retiring from the House this week, I know that Gabby's impact on public policy, this Congress, and this country is far from over. I look forward to seeing the great things she will accomplish in the years to come.

Just as was the case with much of what she does Gabby's last legislative act before she resigns has strong bipartisan appeal. I support H.R. 380 and I support Gabby.
