    SHAHEEN. Madam President, I came to the floor to speak on an entirely different issue, but before I do that, I would like to commend Appropriations Chair Mikulski--and I do like saying that, Appropriations Chair Mikulski--and Ranking Member Shelby for all of the work they and their staffs and the other Senators on the Appropriations Committee have done to try to put together a continuing resolution that is going to keep this government open.

    I share the frustration and the concern we have heard expressed on the floor tonight about the hold-up when we thought there was agreement to get this done.

    So I appreciate all the work that has been done, and hopefully we can get past this and get this bill done.

    The PRESIDING OFFICER. The Senator from Maryland.
