[Congressional Record Volume 152, Number 125 (Friday, September 29, 2006)] [Page S10616] From the Congressional Record Online through the Government Publishing Office [www.gpo.gov] CHILD INTERSTATE ABORTION NOTIFICATION ACT Mr. FRIST. I ask unanimous consent that the mandatory quorum under rule XXII be waived. The PRESIDING OFFICER. Without objection, it is so ordered. The Senator from Michigan is recognized. Unanimous Consent Request--H.R. 5122 Mr. LEVIN. Mr. President, under the unanimous consent agreement, I have been allocated 10 minutes, at the end of which I am going to make a unanimous consent request that we proceed immediately to the Defense Authorization bill, the John Warner Authorization bill conference report, which has come over from the House. I do not know of any opposition to this bill. We have worked on it for 5 months. It has provisions in it which are critically important to our troops. The PRESIDING OFFICER. The Senator will suspend. The Senator from Michigan has the floor. Mr. LEVIN. I think it is critically important before we leave-- Mr. FRIST. Mr. President, let's have regular order. Mr. LEVIN. I ask unanimous consent at this point that the conference report to accompany H.R. 5122, the John Warner National Defense Authorization Act of Fiscal Year 2007, be deemed adopted by the Senate with a motion to reconsider laid upon the table. The PRESIDING OFFICER. Is there objection? Mr. FRIST. Mr. President, reserving the right to object. The PRESIDING OFFICER. The majority leader. Mr. FRIST. We are in discussion now and I believe we are making real progress on addressing this bill. I will object here shortly because we have to talk to a number of colleagues. But I think we are making real progress on the bill. Mr. LEVIN. So we could adopt it tonight? Mr. FRIST. Thus, I object. ____________________
