  The ACTING PRESIDENT pro tempore. Without objection, it is so 
ordered.


                                Schedule

  Mr. REID. Madam President, following leader remarks today, the 
Republican leader will move to proceed to S.J. Res. 37. Following that 
motion; that is, the one Senator McConnell will make, the time until 
11:30 a.m. will be equally divided between the two leaders or their 
designees, with the Republicans controlling the first 15 minutes and 
the majority controlling the next 15 minutes, and I have designated 
that Senator Rockefeller will take that 15 minutes. At 11:30 a.m. the 
Senate will proceed to vote on the motion to proceed to S.J. Res. 37. 
If the motion to proceed is not agreed to, the Senate will then resume 
S. 3240, the farm bill, and the votes in relation to amendments that 
remain in order to the bill. So Senators should expect a long day of 
voting, starting at 11:30 a.m.
  Madam President, we did extremely well yesterday. We were able, as 
indicated last night, to even turn in votes earlier because everyone 
was here. There are lots of events going on in the Capitol today, but 
we are going to have to stick to our business at hand and make sure we 
get through this long list of amendments because we are going to have 
to finish this and the flood insurance legislation before we leave here 
this week. That is a large assignment. We have to do that.


                  Unanimous-Consent Agreement--S. 3240

  Madam President, I ask unanimous consent that with respect to any 
amendments voted on during Tuesday's

[[Page S4314]]

session, where motions to reconsider were not made, that the motions to 
reconsider be considered made and laid upon the table.

  The ACTING PRESIDENT pro tempore. Without objection, it is so 
ordered.


                       Reservation of Leader Time

  The ACTING PRESIDENT pro tempore. Under the previous order, the 
leadership time is reserved.


                   Recognition of the Minority Leader

  The ACTING PRESIDENT pro tempore. The Republican leader is 
recognized.
