  Mr. REID. Following leader remarks, the Senate will be in a period 
morning business until 10:30 a.m. The time until then will be equally 
divided and controlled between the two leaders or their designees.
  Mr. President, if Republicans want to use extra time because of my 
two Democrats here, there will be no problem with that. The Chair will 
know how much time was taken by Senator Coons and Senator Carper.
  At 10:30 there will be two rollcall votes--first a cloture vote on 
the Srinivasan nomination for the D.C. Circuit and a second vote on the 
Sanders amendment to the farm bill.
  The managers will continue to work through amendments to the farm 
bill today. Senators will be notified when additional votes are 
scheduled. I would note we are going to see if we can get a finite list 
of amendments today on the farm bill. Senators Stabenow and Cochran are 
working on that. It would be nice if we can do that.
  Also, we hope we can work something out so we can finish our work 
today. If we do not, we will have to be here tomorrow in the afternoon 
to finish this circuit court business.
