Trade June 24, 2015
Mitch McConnell, R-KY
"Mr. President, yesterday's TPA vote was a long-overdue victory for the American worker and the American middle class. It was not easy. Many thought it would never happen. We even saw corks pop in the facts-optional lobby a few weeks ago. But that proved to be premature because here is what we have always known about the legislation we will vote to send to the President today. It is underpinned by a simple but powerful idea: For American workers to have a fair shot in the 21st-century economy, it makes sense to remove the unfair barriers that discriminate against them and the products they make."
Cyber Security June 24, 2015
Mitch McConnell, R-KY
"Mr. President, on another matter, here is a headline from an Associated Press article that ran yesterday: ``Federal Agencies Are Wide Open to Hackers, Cyberspies.'' That headline is scary enough, but read just a little further, and it gets even worse."
Defending Public Safety Employees’ Retirement Act June 24, 2015
Mitch McConnell, R-KY
"Mr. President, I ask unanimous consent that notwithstanding rule XXII, at 4 p.m. today, June 24, all postcloture time on the motion to concur with respect to H.R. 2146 be considered expired, the pending motion to concur with amendment be withdrawn, and the Senate vote on the motion to concur; that if cloture on H.R. 1295 is invoked, all postcloture time be considered expired, all motions and amendments be withdrawn except the motion to concur with amendment, and the Senate immediately vote on the motion to concur with amendment; further, that following the disposition of H.R. 1295, all time on the compound motion to go to conference under rule XXVIII on H.R. 644 be yielded back and the Senate vote on the motion to invoke cloture with the mandatory quorum waived."
Order Of Procedure June 24, 2015

Mitch McConnell, R-KY
"Mr. President, let me just tell everybody what that means. For the information of all Senators, this means that we will be able to process all of the other votes on trade by voice vote, and so there will be no further rollcall votes this week. Having said that, the Senate will be in session tomorrow. There are multiple committee meetings that are going to occur, but no votes will be expected tomorrow."
