  Mrs. HAGAN. I ask unanimous consent that the Senate proceed to the 
consideration of H.R. 6582, which was received from the House and is at 
the desk.
  The PRESIDING OFFICER. The clerk will report the bill by title.
  The legislative clerk read as follows:

       A bill (H.R. 6582) to allow for innovations and alternative 
     technologies that meet or exceed the desired energy efficient 
     goals, and to make technical corrections to existing Federal 
     energy efficiency laws to allow American manufacturers to 
     remain competitive.

  There being no objection, the Senate proceeded to consider the bill.
  Mrs. HAGAN. I ask unanimous consent that the bill be read three times 
and passed, the motion to reconsider be laid upon the table, with no 
intervening action or debate, and any statements relating to the bill 
be printed in the Record.
  The PRESIDING OFFICER. Without objection, it is so ordered.
