SETTING FORTH THE CONGRESSIONAL BUDGET FOR THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT 
                FOR FISCAL YEAR 2021--MOTION TO PROCEED

  Mr. SCHUMER. Madam President, we all know of the crisis in America--
the greatest economic crisis in 75 years since the New Deal, the 
greatest healthcare crisis in 100 years since the Spanish pandemic flu. 
Americans are suffering and hurting, losing jobs, businesses closing, 
can't feed their families, being evicted from their homes.
  We are in a very, very difficult situation. We cannot afford to 
dither, delay, or dilute. We need a big, bold package along the lines 
of what President Biden has proposed, the American relief plan.
  We hope our Republican colleagues will join us in offering 
amendments. Of course, as you know, as the reconciliation process moves 
forward, it is open to amendments and suggestions. We want it to be a 
bipartisan proposal, but we also know that we must move forward with 
the crisis in America. That is why today's vote is a very good vote, 
because it sets us on the process of moving forward and solving this--
one of the greatest crises America has ever had.
  I move to proceed to Calendar No. 4, S. Con. Res. 5, the concurrent 
resolution on the budget.
  I ask for the yeas and nays.
  The PRESIDING OFFICER. Is there a sufficient second?
  There appears to be a sufficient second.
  The clerk will call the roll.
  The legislative clerk proceeded to call the roll
  Mr. THUNE. The following Senator is necessarily absent: the Senator 
from Pennsylvania (Mr. Toomey).
  Further, if present and voting, the Senator from Pennsylvania (Mr. 
Toomey) would have voted ``nay.''
  The PRESIDING OFFICER (Mr. Murphy). Are there any other Senators in 
the Chamber desiring to vote?
  The result was announced--yeas 50, nays 49, as follows:

                      [Rollcall Vote No. 13 Leg.]
