Madam President, following leader remarks, the Senate will proceed to a period of morning business until 12:30 p.m. Senators will be allowed to speak for up to 10 minutes each, with the time until 10:30 equally divided and controlled between the two leaders or their designees and with the time from 10:30 until 12:30 equally divided, with the majority controlling the first half of that time and the Republicans controlling the second half. The Senate will recess from 12:30 until 2:15 p.m. to allow for the weekly caucus luncheons. When the Senate reconvenes at 2:15, we will resume consideration of H.R. 1586, the FAA reauthorization legislation. Senators should be prepared for rollcall votes this afternoon in relation to amendments to the FAA bill.

The reason I talked about the time equally divided and controlled between Democrats and Republicans, according to how long Senator McConnell might take, it may not be the full 2 hours, but it will be very close.
