                         HON. WILLIAM L. OWENS

                              of new york

                    in the house of representatives

                       Tuesday, December 4, 2012

  Mr. OWENS. Mr. Speaker, I was unavoidably absent due to a family 
emergency on November 29th and November 30th, 2012. As a result, I 
missed rollcall votes 611, 612, and 613 related to H.R. 6429, the STEM 
Job Act of 2012. Had I been present, I would have voted ``no'' on 
rollcall vote 611, ``yes'' on roll call vote 612, and ``no'' on roll 
call vote 613.
