                        Thursday, June 12, 2008

  Mr. COHEN. Madam Speaker, I rise to note that I would have voted in 
favor of both the Motion to Refer H. Res. 1258 to the Committee on the 
Judiciary (Roll. No. 401) and H. Res. 1235 (Roll No. 402). I was 
obligated to leave the House floor before the close of votes in order 
to speak with several important witnesses and supporters just prior to 
a committee hearing that was scheduled to commence immediately after 
that series of votes.
