Mr. REID. Mr. President, if I can have everyone's attention, I will be as quick as possible. Mr. President, we have dealt with 31 amendments on this piece of legislation. Until today, this last amendment, they have all been 50-vote margins. There has been no tabling of motions.
We now have six amendments pending. We have unanimous consent that eight more can be offered. There is talk between the two managers of the bill. There are Democratic amendments we think the Republicans will agree to; there are Republican amendments that we will agree to.
We are moving toward wrapping up this bill. There will be a number of votes on Monday night starting at 5:30. Everyone should be aware of that. Tonight the managers are here. They are going to try to work through a couple of amendments. We have one more vote. After that, there will not be any more votes until Monday night.
