[Page: S6843] GPO's PDF
Mr. BROWNBACK. Mr. President, I ask unanimous consent that when the Senate completes its business today, it stand in adjournment until 9:30 a.m., Thursday, May 22. I further ask that following the prayer and the pledge, the morning hour be deemed expired, the Journal of proceedings be approved to date, the time for the two leaders be reserved for their use later in the day, and the Senate then resume consideration of S. 1050, the Department of Defense authorization bill, provided further that the Murray amendment No. 691 be temporarily set aside, and, further, when the Murray amendment recurs, Senator Brownback be recognized; provided further that when the Senate resumes consideration of the bill on Thursday, Senator Daschle or his designee be recognized to call up amendment No. 791.
The PRESIDING OFFICER. The Democratic whip.
Mr. REID. Mr. President, reserving the right to object, what this unanimous consent agreement says is, in the morning we will come in, do the prayer and the pledge, then we will move to the Daschle amendment. When that is disposed of, Senator Brownback will be recognized to offer a second-degree amendment to the Murray amendment. This is a right the majority would have.
What we are doing here is making sure that Senator Frist, who may not be available at that time in the morning, will have his rights protected.
The PRESIDING OFFICER. Without objection, it is so ordered.
Mr. BROWNBACK. Mr. President, I thank the Senator from Nevada for working with us. We have had a knotty problem here, but I think we are getting on through it, and I appreciate their cooperation in working with us.
