ORDERS FOR TOMORROW

    Mr. McCONNELL. Mr. President, I ask unanimous consent that when the Senate completes its business today, it stand in adjournment until 9:30 a.m., June 18. I further ask that following the prayer and the pledge, the morning hour be deemed to have expired, the Journal of the proceedings be approved to date, the time for the two leaders be reserved for their use later in the day, and the Senate then begin a period of morning business until 10 a.m. with the time equally divided between the two leaders, or their designees, provided that at 10 a.m. the Senate resume consideration of S. 1, the prescription drug benefits bill.

    Mr. REID. Mr. President, reserving the right to object, does the Senator from Kentucky have information that the scoring will be completed sometime during the night?

    Mr. McCONNELL. I am told that we believe it will be ready by the time we resume consideration of the bill in the morning.

    Mr. REID. I think the debate today has been very constructive. I hope that in the next 10 days or so it is the same. I have no objection.

    The PRESIDING OFFICER. Without objection, it is so ordered.

    Mr. McCONNELL. I say to the Democratic whip, as he knows, the intent of the majority leader is to finish this bill by the July 4 recess. We hope to make great progress and, obviously, we will need to do that in the next 10 days.
