  Mr. TESTER. Mr. President, today I want to honor the service of two

  Cathy and Dave exemplify what it means to serve. While civil service

  Today I want the Record to show that Cathy Glenn and Dave Ahart made 
the Senate a better place, and I join all of the Senators and staff to 
thank them for their incredible service.
