Senator Sullivan: (4:05 p.m.)

  • Spoke in tribute to the Alaskan of the Week.
    • " Mr. President, it's Thursday, even though we had a bit of a short week in the Senate, it's one of my favorite times of the week here in the Senate because I get to talk about the Alaskan of the Week, which is a recognition we give to somebody who's doing something important in our state. I can see by the smile on the pages' faces it's their favorite time of the week too because we talk about Alaska, talk about somebody who is making a difference. Maybe it's a difference just in their local community, maybe it's state, maybe it's nationwide. But what I really enjoy doing in this speech every week is not just highlighting my great state, and, of course, we all think our states are great."
