                          PERSONAL EXPLANATION


                            HON. DIANE BLACK

                              of tennessee

                    in the house of representatives

                        Wednesday, June 6, 2012

  Mrs. BLACK. Mr. Speaker, during Floor consideration of H.R. 5325 on 
June 1, 2012, I mistakenly recorded my vote on roll No. 311 as ``no'' 
on the question on agreeing to the amendment offered by Mr. McClintock 
of California.
  I intended to vote ``yes'', on the McClintock amendment, which sought 
to reduce the Department of Energy, Energy Programs, Energy Efficiency 
and Renewable Energy Account by $1,450,960,000 and apply the savings to 
the spending reduction account. Again, I would like to reiterate my 
strong support for the McClintock amendment and wish to clearly state 
for the record that I support the amendment to H.R. 5325 and did not 
intend to vote against it.
