[Page S6405] From the Congressional Record Online through the Government Publishing Office [www.gpo.gov] MAKING CONTINUING APPROPRIATIONS FOR FISAL YEAR 2013 Mr. REID. Mr. President, I now move to proceed to Calendar No. 511, H.J. Res. 117, which is the continuing resolution. The PRESIDING OFFICER. The clerk will report. The bill clerk read as follows. A resolution (H.J. Res. 117) making continuing appropriations for fiscal year 2013, and for other purposes. Cloture Motion Mr. REID. Mr. President, I am momentarily going to send to the desk a cloture motion that I will ask be reported. But prior to that, I am filing cloture. What a shame. Why would we have to file cloture on the continuing resolution? It is absurd. But I will go through the process and do it. I think it is just such a shame. I have a cloture motion at the desk, and I ask that it be reported. The PRESIDING OFFICER. The cloture motion having been presented under rule XXII, the Chair directs the clerk to read the motion.
