Madam President, I suggest the absence of a quorum until a member of the minority appears.

The clerk will call the roll.

The assistant legislative clerk proceeded to call the roll.

Madam President, I ask unanimous consent that the order for the quorum call be rescinded.

Without objection, it is so ordered.
