Mr. BARRASSO. Mr. President, I want to join the Republican leader in expressing my appreciation of Senator Scott today, not just for his maiden speech but because we have new pages on the Senate floor and so it is their first time, and I see the bright eyes of these young people looking up to the Senator as he gives his maiden speech as he talks about the next generation.

I was thinking a bit, because I saw an editorial the Senator had written published Sunday a week ago--``IRS targeting scandal shows need for reform''--and so I was happy to hear the Senator talking about some of the things happening there, because he talks about responsibility, accountability, and the kinds of things we heard in his maiden speech today. He writes in a concise way, also a courageous way, so I want to join the Republican leader in welcoming the new Senator and his comments, and I look forward to working with him for many years to come.

I thank the Chair.
