a unanimous consent request.

  Mr. THUNE. Mr. President, I understand that a number of Senators have 
filed amendments related to energy policy, and I think they ought to be 
allowed to offer those amendments.

No. 3013.

no Senator is permitted to offer an amendment to this bill while the 
majority leader's amendments and motions are pending?

is no place for another amendment on the Senate's amendment tree.

I move to table the Reid amendment No. 3023, and I ask for the yeas and 
nays.

  The PRESIDING OFFICER. The Senator from Illinois.
  Mr. DURBIN. Is a unanimous consent request necessary for action just 
taken by the Senator from South Dakota?
  The PRESIDING OFFICER. A unanimous consent was previously granted for 
two motions to table.
  Is there a sufficient second?
  There appears to be a sufficient second.
  The question is on agreeing to the motion.
