Unanimous Consent Agreement - Executive Calendar

Location: Washington, DC


    Mr. McCONNELL. Mr. President, as in executive session, I ask unanimous consent that at 11 o'clock a.m., on Wednesday, June 11, the Senate proceed to executive session for the consideration of Calendar No. 220, the nomination of Richard Wesley, to be United States Circuit Judge for the Second Circuit; provided further that there then be 15 minutes for debate equally divided between the chairman and ranking member prior to a vote on the confirmation of the nomination, with no intervening action or debate. I further ask consent that following the vote, the President be immediately notified of the Senate's action, and the Senate then resume legislative session.

    The PRESIDING OFFICER. Is there objection?

    Mr. REID. Mr. President, I ask the Senator to modify his request to allow the chairman and ranking member, or their designees, to control the time. I also say this: If he accepts that modification, this will be the 129th judge we will have approved during the tenure of President Bush, and this will be the 36th circuit judge.

    Mr. McCONNELL. Mr. President, I so modify my unanimous consent request.

    The PRESIDING OFFICER. Is there objection to the modified request?

    Without objection, it is so ordered.
