                          PERSONAL EXPLANATION

  Mr. GENE GREEN of Texas. Mr. Speaker, due to previous district 
commitments in Houston yesterday, I was not able to vote on rollcall 
votes taken during the evening of March 19 and March 20. I rise today 
to notify the House and the public on how I would have voted on those 
missed rollcall votes.
  On House rollcall vote 144, ``yes'';
  On House rollcall vote 145, ``yes'';
  On House rollcall vote 146, ``yes'';
  On House rollcall vote 147, ``yes'';
  On House rollcall vote 148, ``no'';
  On House rollcall vote 149, ``yes'';
  On House rollcall vote 150, ``yes'';
  On House rollcall vote 151, ``yes'';
  On House rollcall vote 152, ``yes'';
  On House rollcall vote 153, ``yes'';
  On House rollcall vote 154, ``yes.''
  Mr. Speaker, I do not take my voting responsibilities lightly. My 
voting percentage in the 111th Congress is over 96 percent. I rarely 
miss votes, but with the long week in Washington like all of us have 
had, I had previous commitments I could not miss in the district.
