  Mr. COHEN. Madam Speaker, I rise to note that I was unable to arrive 
on the House floor in time to vote because my flight from Memphis was 
significantly delayed due to bad weather. Had I been able to vote, I 
would have voted in favor of the three measures voted on by the House 
this evening: (1) H. Res. 1242, honoring the life, musical 
accomplishments, and contributions of Louis Jordan on the 100th 
Anniversary of his birth; (2) 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 (3) H. Res. 1051, congratulating James Madison 
University in Harrisonburg, Virginia, for 100 years of service and 
leadership to the United States.
