    REID. Mr. President, I have a concurrent resolution at the desk, and I ask that it now be considered.



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

    The legislative clerk read as follows: A concurrent resolution (S. Con. Res. 2) extending the life of the Joint Congressional Committee on Inaugural Ceremonies.

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

    The concurrent resolution (S. Con. Res. 2) reads as follows: S. Con. Res. 2 Resolved by the Senate (the House of Representatives concurring), SECTION 1. REAUTHORIZATION OF JOINT COMMITTEE.

    Effective from January 3, 2013, the joint committee created by Senate Concurrent Resolution 35 (112th Congress), to make the necessary arrangements for the inauguration of the President-elect and the Vice President-elect of the United States, is continued with the same power and authority provided for in that resolution.

    SEC. 2. USE OF CAPITOL.

    Effective from January 3, 2013, the provisions of Senate Concurrent Resolution 36 (112th Congress), to authorize the use of the rotunda and Emancipation Hall of the Capitol by the Joint Congressional Committee on Inaugural Ceremonies in connection with the proceedings and ceremonies conducted for the inauguration of the President-elect and the Vice President-elect of the United States are continued with the same power and authority provided for in that resolution.
