  Mr. AL GREEN of Texas. Madam Speaker, I was unavoidably detained in 
my district on Monday, September 15, 2008 because of Hurricane Ike. I 
missed rollcall votes 589 through 591. Had I been present, I would have 
voted ``aye'' on rollcall 589, ``aye'' on rollcall 590, and ``aye'' on 
rollcall 591.
