Floor Speech

Location: Washington, DC


Mr. McCAIN. Again, I can't speak for Senator Grassley, who is managing the bill in an outstanding fashion, but I would like to point out, in conversations I have had with Senator Grassley, these amendments are in process, and as the Senator mentioned, there are a number of them being cleared. In other words, rather than just being judged noncontroversial, which I certainly accept the word of the Senator from Louisiana, we need to clear them with everybody. I hope she understands, and I hope we can move forward rather rapidly with that process.

I don't dispute they are ``noncontroversial,'' but every Senator obviously wants to have these amendments cleared with them, and they have already started that process. I appreciate the advocacy and the involvement of the Senator from Louisiana. She has been extraordinarily involved in this issue by helping us make the package much better, and I hope she will show some more--I emphasize more--patience as we try to get this package agreed to by both sides.
