  Mr. DOLE. During tomorrow's session, the Senate may turn to any 
legislative items that can be cleared by unanimous consent. Rollcall 
votes are not expected during Tuesday's session. However, if a vote is 
necessary, all Members will be given ample notification. As a reminder, 
all Senators should gather in the Senate Chamber at 8:35 p.m. Tuesday 
evening, in order for the Senate to proceed as a body to the Hall of 
the House of Representatives for the State of the Union Address.
  I indicate, as I did this morning, it is still our hope to make a 
continuing resolution before the close of business on Friday, maybe 
Thursday, maybe even Wednesday depending on when it is passed by the 
House. It is also our hope we can pass the continuing resolution by 
consent, and that in the event the Defense Department authorization 
bill comes to us from the House, we may proceed to that, which if it 
requires a rollcall vote, then we will not vote on it until we have 
given all our colleagues ample notice.
  There is also some indication that the administration may want us to 
proceed on the extension of the debt limit, debt ceiling, and that may 
or may not come before the Senate this week.
