                          PERSONAL EXPLANATION


                            HON. STEVE KING

                                of iowa

                    in the house of representatives

                       Friday, November 18, 2011

  Mr. KING of Iowa. Mr. Speaker, on November 16, on rollcall No. 843, I 
mistakenly cast a ``yes'' vote in favor of the Woodall amendment to 
H.R. 822. I am submitting this statement for printing in the 
Congressional Record to clarify that I am opposed to the Woodall 
amendment and had intended to vote ``no.''
  I was delayed in reaching the House floor because of a meeting in my 
office and, as a result, I arrived on the floor just before the vote 
was closed. Owing to this, I cast my vote in haste, which led to the 
resultant errant vote.
