[Extensions of Remarks] [Page E1038] From the Congressional Record Online through the Government Publishing Office [www.gpo.gov] PERSONAL EXPLANATION ______ HON. LUIS V. GUTIERREZ of illinois in the house of representatives Friday, July 10, 2015 Mr. GUTIERREZ. Mr. Speaker, I was unavoidably absent in the House chamber today because I was at the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals hearing in New Orleans, LA, on President Barack Obama's immigration executive actions. Had I been present, I would have voted ``nay'' on roll call vote 431. I would have voted ``yea'' on roll call vote 432 and in favor of the Lee/Schakowsky/Clarke Amendment which would have struck from the underlying bill controversial policy riders that will undermine a woman's right to choose. This amendment would have protected women's health care choices and was especially vital to low-income and minority women's health. I would have voted ``yea'' on roll call vote 433 in support of H.R. 6, the 21st Century Cures Act. ____________________
