    SESSIONS. Mr. President, I ask unanimous consent to waive the quorum.



    The PRESIDING OFFICER. Is there objection? Without objection, it is so ordered. The mandatory quorum has been waived.

    The question is, Is it the sense of the Senate that debate on the motion to concur in the House amendment to the Senate amendment to H.R. 3304 shall be brought to a close? The yeas and nays are mandatory under the rule.

    The clerk will call the roll.

    The assistant legislative clerk called the roll.

    The yeas and nays resulted--yeas 71, nays 29, as follows: [Rollcall Vote No. 282 Leg.] YEAS--71 Alexander Ayotte Baldwin Baucus Begich Bennet Blumenthal Blunt Booker Boozman Boxer Brown Burr Cantwell Cardin Carper Casey Coats Cochran Collins Coons Donnelly Durbin Feinstein Franken Gillibrand Graham Hagan Harkin Hatch Heinrich Heitkamp Hirono Inhofe Johanns Johnson (SD) Kaine King Klobuchar Landrieu Leahy Levin Manchin Markey McCain McCaskill Menendez Merkley Mikulski Moran Murkowski Murphy Murray Nelson Pryor Reed Reid Rockefeller Schatz Schumer Scott Shaheen Stabenow Tester Udall (CO) Udall (NM) Warner Warren Whitehouse Wicker Wyden NAYS--29 Barrasso Chambliss Coburn Corker Cornyn Crapo Cruz Enzi Fischer Flake Grassley Heller Hoeven Isakson Johnson (WI) Kirk Lee McConnell Paul Portman Risch Roberts Rubio Sanders Sessions Shelby Thune Toomey Vitter The PRESIDING OFFICER.
