Funding to Ensure Production of Authorized Number of Copies of Revised Version of "Hispanic Americans in Congress"

Floor Speech

Location: Washington, DC


Mr. BRADY of Pennsylvania. Mr. Speaker, I yield myself such time as I may consume.

Mr. Speaker, I urge the House to adopt this resolution which the chairman has accurately described. Members who served in the 107th Congress will recall that in 2001 we authorized new additions of three congressional publications: ``Women in Congress,'' ``Black Americans in Congress,'' and ``Hispanic Americans in Congress.''

The new editions of ``Women in Congress'' and ``Black Americans in Congress'' were distributed to Members, libraries, and others in 2007 pursuant to their respective authorizations. However, in the 11 years since we authorized the new edition of Hispanic Americans in Congress, circumstances have changed, including, I am delighted to say, the election of more Hispanics to serve in this House and the other body. This means the new edition will be larger than estimated, and the cost of printing the same number of copies of Hispanic Americans will likely be larger.

As I urge adoption of this resolution, I wish to thank the Clerk, who worked on this revised edition, and the dedicated men and women of the Government Printing Office, who procure the volumes for their fine work.

The new editions of ``Women in Congress'' and ``Black Americans in Congress'' are useful, high-quality reference volumes of great value to students, historians, and us. I am certain the new edition of ``Hispanic Americans in Congress'' will similarly be well received when published and distributed in the coming months.

Mr. Chairman, I reserve the balance of my time.
