[Congressional Record: December 15, 2000 (Senate)]
[Page S11898]
From the Congressional Record Online via GPO Access []

  Mr. ABRAHAM. Mr. President, as I leave the service of the Senate, I 
would like to take a moment and recognize the service of my dedicated 
staff over these last six years. Pay in a Congressional office is not 
great, Mr. President, the hours are incredibly long, and often times 
the work they do goes unheralded. But still these staffers dedicate 
their time and effort to helping the people of Michigan and advancing 
their interests.
  I would like to take this opportunity, on behalf of the people of the 
State of Michigan, to thank them all for their dedicated and tireless 
  Mr. President, at this point I would like to enter into the Record a 
list of those people that have served on my staff, both here in 
Washington and back in Michigan, as a way of thanking them.
  There being no objection, the material was ordered to be printed in 
the Record, as follows:
