HONORING CONGRESSWOMAN MARCY KAPTUR ON BECOMING THE LONGEST SERVING WOMAN IN THE HISTORY OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES ______ HON. DANIEL LIPINSKI of illinois in the house of representatives Wednesday, March 14, 2018

Mr. LIPINSKI. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to honor Congresswoman Marcy Kaptur of Ohio's Ninth District, for becoming the longest serving woman in the history of the U.S. House of Representatives. She breaks a record that has stood since 1960, when it was set by another great American trailblazer, Congresswoman Edith Nourse Rogers.

It is only fitting that Congresswoman Kaptur becomes the longest serving woman in the history of the House during Women's History Month. This dedicated public servant has demonstrated time and time again her commitment to constituent service and her passion for tackling the tough issues. In representing the Great Lakes Region, she has shown her dedication to preserving the waters, lands, and environment our states share. Her leadership in the Polish Caucus is greatly appreciated and I have learned much through exploring our mutual heritage. And as she has stood up for the middle class, I have had the privilege of watching her fight for the Midwest and our manufacturing roots.

I ask my colleagues to join me in congratulating Congresswoman Kaptur on this achievement. During my time in Congress, I have been honored to serve with Congresswoman Kaptur. Her conviction, work ethic, and strength stand as a model to all Americans. As we celebrate Women's History Month, I hope that many more women will be inspired by her example and pursue a career in public service. I extend the most heartfelt congratulations to Congresswoman Kaptur, both on her phenomenal accomplishment and her proud tenure in Congress. [[Page E310]] ____________________
