Madam President, following leader remarks, if any, the Senate will resume consideration of the motion to proceed to S. 2230; that is, the Paying a Fair Share Act. The Republicans will control the first 30 minutes and the majority will control the next 30 minutes.

I now ask unanimous consent that following the first hour, the time until 5 p.m. today be equally divided and controlled between the two leaders or their designees, and that the time from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. be under the control of the majority, and the time from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. be under the control of the Republicans.

Without objection, it is so ordered.

Sen. Harry Reid

Thank you, Madam President.

At 5 p.m. this evening, the Senate will proceed to executive session to consider the Du and Morgan nominations--prospective judges from Nevada and Louisiana. At 6 p.m. there will be two votes on confirmation of those nominations.
