                       Tuesday, November 6, 2007

  Ms. SCHAKOWSKY. Madam Speaker, on November 5, I was detained in my 
district due to travel delays, and missed the votes on passage of the 
Motion to Close Portions of the Conference to H.R. 3222, the FY08 
Department of Defense Appropriations Conference; H.R. 513, the National 
Heroes Credit Protection Act; and H. Res. 744, recognizing the 
contributions of Native American veterans and calling upon the 
President to issue a proclamation urging the people of the United 
States to observe a day in honor of Native American veterans. Had I 
been present, I would have voted ``yea'' on passage of all three bills.
