                           ORDER OF PROCEDURE

  Mr. REID. I ask unanimous consent that if the Senate receives an 
adjournment resolution from the House identical to the text which is at 
the desk, the concurrent resolution be considered agreed to and the 
motion to reconsider be considered made and laid upon the table, with 
no intervening action or debate.
  The PRESIDING OFFICER. Without objection, it is so ordered.
  Mr. REID. Mr. President, I ask unanimous consent that either on 
Monday, February 25, or Tuesday, February 26, I be permitted and the 
Republican leader be permitted to introduce a bill to replace the 
sequester required under the Budget Control Act; further, that if a 
leader introduces such legislation, his bill be placed directly on the 
legislative calendar; finally, that motions to proceed to these bills 
be in order the day they are introduced.
  The PRESIDING OFFICER. Without objection, it is so ordered.
  Mr. REID. Mr. President, the purpose of this--and I have had meetings 
with Senator McConnell--is that we are each going to have a piece of 
legislation to hold the sequester from kicking in, and this is the 
easiest way to do it without a lot of procedural motions, and I 
appreciate everyone's cooperation in that regard.
