  Mr. ALLARD. Mr. President, today the Senate will resume postcloture 
debate on the motion to proceed to the China PNTR legislation. It is 
hoped an agreement can be reached to begin debate on the substance of 
the bill during today's session of the Senate. The Senate will also 
continue debate on the energy and water appropriations bill during this 
evening's session. The Schumer amendment regarding an energy commission 
is the pending amendment.
  By previous consent, during today's consideration of the energy and 
water appropriations bill, Senator Daschle, or his designee, will be 
recognized to offer a motion to strike the language relating to the 
Missouri River. There will be up to 3 hours of debate on the amendment 
prior to a vote in relation to the motion; therefore, votes could occur 
into the evening.
  I thank my colleagues for their attention.
