                         Friday, March 6, 2009

  Mr. SPACE. Madam Speaker, today, I will be absent from votes in the 
House, as I will be travelling to Ohio with the President to discuss 
the economic challenges facing my home state of Ohio.
  The most recent unemployment numbers only underscore the clear and 
glaring need for economic revitalization in my district. I look forward 
to sharing the perspective of Appalachian Ohio with the President and 
discussing how we can move forward with plans that offer new 
opportunity for the people I represent. This cooperation will be 
critical to steering our nation's economy back on track.
  I will return to the House for any scheduled votes this afternoon.
