  Mr. HINOJOSA. Madam Speaker, I rise to inform you that I was 
unavoidably detained in my district over the past few days to come to 
the floor of the House of Representatives to cast my vote on certain 
rollcall votes.
  Had I been present, I would have voted the following way:
  I would have voted ``aye'' for rollcall Nos. 43 through 45, rollcall 
Nos. 48 through 51, and rollcall Nos. 53 through 57.
  I would have voted ``nay'' for rollcall Nos. 46, 47, 52.
