BREAK IN TRANSCRIPT

Ms. STABENOW. Let me say, for purposes of the Members, now that we have completed our official voting for today, I want to thank everyone for all of their hard work and the staff for all of their hard work.

It is a continuing pleasure to work with my ranking member Senator Cochran. We are in the process of securing a time for a vote, hopefully in the morning, and then we have a number of votes tomorrow.

We are on a path to getting this done. With the cooperation of the Members, we are hopeful we will have a number of votes tomorrow and be able to complete this very important bill.

I would just remind colleagues that 16 million people work in this country because of agriculture. It is probably the biggest jobs bill that will come before this body, and we are very grateful for everyone's patience and willingness to work with us to bring this bill to completion.

I suggest the absence of a quorum.
