                          HON. BRUCE L. BRALEY

                                of iowa

                    in the house of representatives

                       Tuesday, November 6, 2007

  Mr. BRALEY of Iowa. Madam Speaker, due to a flight delay on my return 
trip from Iowa to Washington on November 5, 2007, I unavoidably missed 
rollcall votes Nos. 1034, 1035, and 1036.
  Had I been present, on rollcall vote No. 1034, I would have voted 
  As a co-sponsor of H.R. 513, the National Heroes Credit Protection 
Act, I would have voted ``yea'' on rollcall vote No. 1035. I am pleased 
that this important bill, which would protect the credit ratings of 
military servicemembers and alleviate financial stress for troops 
serving our country in Iraq and Afghanistan, passed the House 
  On rollcall vote No. 1036, I would have voted ``yea.''
