BREAK IN TRANSCRIPT

Mr. WOMACK. Madam Speaker, I thank the gentleman for his time, and I thank the gentleman from North Carolina for his kind remarks, too.

I want to thank the Speaker of the House and Leader Cantor and Chairman Bachus for giving me the honor and privilege of helping shepherd this important piece of legislation through the House.

As was already mentioned in previous remarks, this bill, H.R. 886, passed overwhelmingly through this House with only a single dissenting vote late last year in the first year of the 112th Congress. It's gone over to the Senate, and it's come back with an amendment that simply reassures the American people that none of the production costs or other costs associated with the minting of this coin that commemorates the 225th anniversary of the Marshals service will be borne by the taxpayers.

So it just further assures the discerning public out here that the effort that we're doing today in honoring a great law enforcement agency in the U.S. Marshals Service at the same time does not cost the taxpayers any money. So I urge strong support for this bill, as amended.
