Madam Speaker, on July 23, 2007, I was unable to be present for all rollcall votes because I was returning from Iraq where I was able to meet with soldiers from Fort Hood.

If present, I would have voted accordingly on the following rollcall votes:

Roll No. 687 on H.R. 404, the Federal Customer Service Enhancement Act--``yea.''

Roll No. 688 on H. Res. 553, Mourning the passing of former First Lady, Lady Bird Johnson, and celebrating her life and contributions to the people of the United States--``yea.''

Roll No. 689 on H. Res. 535, Commending David Ray Ritcheson, a survivor of one of the most horrific hate crimes in the history of Texas, and recognizing his efforts in promoting Federal legislation to combat hate crimes--``nay.''

Roll No. 690 on Previous Question on H. Res. 558, Providing for consideration of the bill making appropriations for the Departments of Transportation, and Housing and Urban Development--``nay.''

Rep. Steve King

Madam Speaker, unfortunately I was detained due to official Congressional business. Had I been present, I would have voted ``yea'' on the following rollcall votes: ``yea'' on H.R. 404--Federal Customer Service Enhancement Act; ``yea'' on H. Res. 553--Mourning the passing of former First Lady, Lady Bird Johnson, and celebrating her life and contributions to the people of the United States; ``yea'' on H. Res. 519--Honoring the life and accomplishments of renowned artist Tom Lea on the 100th anniversary of his birth.

Additionally, had I been present, I would have voted ``nay'' on the following rollcall votes: ``nay'' on the Previous Question--H. Res. 558 for H.R. 3074; ``nay'' on H. Res. 558, the Rule for H.R. 3074--Departments of Transportation, and Housing and Urban Development, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2008.

Madam Speaker, on Monday, July 23, 2007, I was unavoidable detained due to transportation delays and thus I missed rollcall votes Nos. 687, 688, 689, and 690. Had I been present, I would have voted ``yea'' on Nos. 687, 688, and 689, and ``nay'' on No. 690.

(By unanimous consent, Mr. Blunt was allowed to speak out of order.)

Sen. Roy Blunt

Madam Speaker, I would like to ask my friend, the majority leader, for any information about the schedule for the rest of the day today.

I yield to the gentleman.

Rep. Steny H. Hoyer

I thank the gentleman for yielding.

We will have another vote, and then it will be our intention to go to debate on the Transportation-HUD bill. We will go to debate after the votes until 10 o'clock. We will then end the debate on the bill at that time, have no further proceedings on the bill after 10 p.m. tonight, and go back to it tomorrow morning after 1-minutes.

Sen. Roy Blunt

I appreciate that. On our side, I would tell the gentleman, we would not intend to call for a vote on the rule vote, which I think is the remaining business for the day, other than a voice vote.

Rep. Steny H. Hoyer

If the gentleman would yield.

Sen. Roy Blunt

I yield.

Rep. Steny H. Hoyer

If that's the case, then we would expect no additional votes tonight for the Members.

Without objection, 5-minute voting will continue.

There was no objection.

The question is on the resolution.

The resolution was agreed to.

A motion to reconsider was laid on the table.
