  Mr. BARRETT of South Carolina. Madam Speaker, due to my attendance at 
events in my district and state discussing legislation that will help 
move our country toward energy independence, I unfortunately missed 
recorded votes on the House floor on Monday, September 15, 2008.
  Had I been present, I would have voted ``yes'' on rollcall vote No. 
589, Motion to suspend the rules and agree to H. Res. 1200, ``yes'' on 
rollcall vote No. 590, Motion to suspend the rules and agree to H. Con. 
Res. 390, and ``yes'' on rollcall vote No. 591, Motion to suspend the 
rules and agree to H.R. 6889.
