                          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.
