  Ms. McCOLLUM. Madam Speaker, on Monday, May 18, 2009, I was excused 
from a series of three rollcall votes. Had I been present, I would have 
voted ``yea'' on all three measures.
  These measures were: H. Res. 300, a resolution congratulating Camp 
Dudley YMCA of Westport, New York, on the occasion of its 125th 
anniversary, introduced by Mr. McHugh of New York; S. 386, the Fraud 
Enforcement and Recovery Act of 2009, as amended, introduced by Senator 
Leahy of Vermont; and H. Res. 442, a resolution recognizing the 
importance of the Child and Adult Care Food Program and its positive 
effect on the lives of low income children and families, introduced by 
Mr. George Miller of California.
