Entry Title Date
Order Of Procedure May 23, 2015

"Mr. President, I ask unanimous consent that the mandatory quorum calls with respect to the cloture votes on the motions to proceed to H.R. 2048 and S. 1357 be waived."
Order Of Procedure May 23, 2015
Mitch McConnell, R-KY
"Mr. President, I ask unanimous consent that notwithstanding rule XXII, the cloture vote on the motion to proceed to H.R. 2048 start immediately, followed immediately by the second cloture vote if cloture is not invoked."
Cloture Motion May 23, 2015
Mitch McConnell, R-KY
"Mr. President, I enter a motion to reconsider the vote."
Cloture Motion May 23, 2015
Mitch McConnell, R-KY
"Mr. President, the Senate has demonstrated that the House-passed bill lacks the support of 60 Senators. I would urge a ``yes'' vote on the 2-month extension. Senator Burr, the chairman of the Intelligence Committee, and Senator Feinstein, the ranking member, as we all know, have been working on a proposal that they think would improve the version that the Senate has not accepted that the House sent over. It would allow the committee to work on this bill, refine it, and bring it before us for consideration. So the 2-month extension, it strikes me, would be in the best interest of getting an outcome that is acceptable to both the Senate and the House and hopefully the President."
Cloture Motion May 23, 2015
Mitch McConnell, R-KY
"So I would urge a ``yes'' vote."
