    McCONNELL. I have a resolution at the desk and ask for its immediate consideration.



    The PRESIDENT pro tempore. The clerk will report the resolution by title.

    The legislative clerk read as follows: A resolution (S. Res. 6) expressing the thanks of the Senate to the Honorable Patrick J. Leahy for his service as President Pro Tempore of the United States Senate and to designate Senator Leahy as President Pro Tempore Emeritus of the United States Senate.

    The PRESIDENT pro tempore. Without objection, the resolution is considered and agreed to.

    The resolution (S. Res. 6) reads as follows: [[Page S7]] S. Res. 6 Resolved, That the United States Senate expresses its deepest gratitude to Senator Patrick J. Leahy for his dedication and commitment during his service to the Senate as the President Pro Tempore.

    Further, as a token of appreciation of the Senate for his long and faithful service, Senator Patrick J. Leahy is hereby designated President Pro Tempore Emeritus of the United States Senate.

    Mr. McCONNELL. I move to reconsider the vote by which the resolution was agreed to.
