                          PERSONAL EXPLANATION

  Ms. KILPATRICK. Mr. Speaker, due to personal reasons, I was unable to 
attend several votes. Had I been present, I would have voted ``yea'' on 
final passage of H. Res. 1242, Honoring the life, musical 
accomplishments, and contributions of Louis Jordan on the 100th 
anniversary of his birth; ``yea'' on final passage of my bill, H. Con. 
Res. 372, supporting the goals and ideals of Black Music Month and to 
honor the outstanding contributions that African American singers and 
musicians have made to the United States, and ``yea'' on final passage 
of H. Res. 1051--Congratulating James Madison University in 
Harrisonburg, Virginia, for 100 years of service and leadership to the 
United States.
