Missed Votes

In late January 2016, I underwent a hip replacement procedure to correct problems stemming from my October 2014 hip surgery.  In late 2014 and early 2015, I had two hip surgeries, one on each hip. I encountered ongoing difficulties with my recovery from the first surgery, necessitating a further procedure.

As I recuperated, I continued to closely monitor legislative activity in the U.S. House, consistently submitted for the Congressional Record how I would have voted on any legislation considered in the House, and maximized the number of in-district meetings I took while in Washington state. Throughout my recovery, my staff remained engaged in the community and continued to take meetings in D.C.

Due to the procedure, and the medical concerns related to traveling, I unavoidably missed votes in the U.S. House.  For every vote taken by the House during my absence, I am committed to ensuring that my constituents have access to the appropriate records so they know where I stand on the issues.  My position on each matter considered during my time away appears in the Congressional Record and is accessible through my congressional website:

I also want to thank everyone who reached out to me and my office to wish me well in my recovery.  The outpouring of support has meant a lot to me and helped to keep my spirits up during the procedure and recovery.
