                      UNANIMOUS-CONSENT AGREEMENT

  Mr. LOTT. In view of that, I ask unanimous consent, Madam President, 
that the Treasury bill be placed on the calendar and the Senate proceed 
to the Interior appropriations bill at 9:30 a.m. on Friday, September 
13, and if we can get an agreement on the Magnuson fishery bill we may 
go to that instead.
  Mr. DASCHLE. Reserving the right to object, and I will not object, 
let me just say we have worked on this side on the Treasury-postal bill 
to narrow the list of amendments. We began this morning with 45, 
tonight we are down to 6. So we have made good progress. I thank all of 
my colleagues on this side of the aisle for their cooperation. 
Hopefully, we can work out the remaining questions relating to the 
additional short list of amendments. I think the majority leader's 
recommendation is a

good one. I hope we could begin the debate on the Interior bill 
tomorrow, perhaps taking up the Federal aviation bill on Monday, but we 
will work with the majority to see that we have a full schedule and 
protect Senators who have plans for religious purposes tomorrow.
  I have no objection.
  The PRESIDING OFFICER. Without objection, it is so ordered.
  Mr. LOTT. I thank the Democratic leader for his cooperation. I ask 
unanimous consent that during the consideration of H.R. 3662, the 
Interior appropriations bill, that no amendments relative to Boundary 
Waters Canoe Area Wilderness or Voyageur's National Park be in order 
prior to Tuesday, September 17, 1996.
  Madam President, let me withhold that request.
  Madam President, we do want to make sure that is cleared by a Senator 
that has a direct interest in it, and we will make a call right now. It 
would be my intent to honor this, but I will try to get a unanimous-
consent agreement locked in while we are making calls.
