PUBLIC SAFETY EMPLOYER-EMPLOYEE COOPERATION ACT--MOTION TO PROCEED -- (Senate - May 07, 2008)

Mr. DODD. Mr. President, I ask unanimous consent that upon the disposition of H.R. 3121, the House-passed Flood Insurance Act, the Senate proceed to the consideration of Calendar No. 275, H.R. 980, an act to provide collective bargaining rights for public safety officers employed by States and political subdivisions.

The PRESIDING OFFICER. Is there objection?

Mr. DeMINT. Mr. President, on behalf of several of my colleagues, I object.

The PRESIDING OFFICER. Objection is heard.

Mr. DODD. Mr. President, I wonder if consent would be granted to proceed to H.R. 980 at a time to be determined by the majority leader following consultation with the Republican leader.

The PRESIDING OFFICER. Is there objection?

Mr. DeMINT. Mr. President, on behalf of several of my colleagues, I object.
