Thank you. I rise to celebrate Lunar New Year, 설날 (seollal), and Tet Festival as we ring in the year of the dragon, symbolizing strength, power, and good fortune.  

I wish success, opportunities, happiness, and good changes for you and your family this new year. 

In Congress, I will embody the fighting spirit of the dragon to keep breaking through the partisan gridlock and delivering results to keep our communities safe and prosperous, make life more affordable, and expand opportunities for Americans to achieve their dream. 

Please allow me to offer best wishes to everyone in different Asian languages:

  • 새해많이받으세요 (saehae bok mani badeuseyo)
  • 新年快樂 (Xīnnián kuàilè)
  • 恭喜發財 (Gong hei fat choy)
  •  Chúc Mừng Năm Mới  

Happy New Year! Thank you and I yield back.
