  Mr. TAYLOR. Madam Speaker, yesterday, on September 4, 2007, I was 
unavoidably detained in my congressional district as a result of a 
mechanical problem which prevented the departure of my scheduled flight 
from Gulfport, MS. Unfortunately, I missed rollcall votes 847, 848 and 
849. Had I been present, I would have voted ``yea'' on each of the 
rollcall votes.
