BREAK IN TRANSCRIPT

Mr. SIMPSON. Madam Speaker, I rise today to congratulate my friend Brent Hill on nearly two decades of service in the Idaho State Senate.

Born and raised in Idaho, Brent graduated from Madison High School in Rexburg, the very city he would represent. He went on to graduate from my alma mater, Utah State University.

Hill had an impressive career in accounting, serving over twenty years as the Chief Executive Office of Rudd & Company and a member of the Board of Directors of Citizens Community Bank in Eastern Idaho. This expertise would make him the go-to lawmaker on tax issues in the legislature.

In 2001, Hill was first appointed to the Idaho Senate. Ten years into his political career he was elected Senate President Pro Tempore. He held this position for a decade, making him the longest serving pro tempore in Idaho history.

Hill is admired by his colleagues in both chambers for his commitment to honesty and civility. He is someone who wants to bring all parties to the table and reach solutions together. His selfless service has been a template for the countless lawmakers that have looked to him as a mentor.

With twenty grandchildren, he may find himself busier now than ever. The citizens of Idaho have greatly benefited by having leaders like Brent Hill in office. He has been a great friend to Kathy and me over the years, and I want to thank him for his diligent service and congratulate him on his retirement from the Idaho State Senate.
