  Mrs. HAGAN. I ask unanimous consent that the bill be read a third 
time and passed, the motion to reconsider be considered made and laid 
upon the table, with no intervening action or debate, and that any 
statements relating to the bill be printed in the Record.
  The PRESIDING OFFICER. Without objection, it is so ordered.
  The bill (S. 3666) was ordered to be engrossed for a third reading,

     household pet who derives less than a substantial portion of 
     income from a nonprimary source (as determined by the 
     Secretary) for exhibiting an animal that exclusively resides 
     at the residence of the pet owner,'' after ``stores,''.
