McCONNELL. Mr. President, I move to proceed to S. 1.
The PRESIDENT pro tempore. The clerk will report the motion.
The assistant legislative clerk read as follows: Motion to proceed to Calendar No. 1, S. 1, a bill to approve the Keystone XL Pipeline.
Unanimous Consent Agreement--H.R. 26 Mr. McCONNELL. Mr. President, I ask unanimous consent that following leader remarks the Senate proceed to the consideration of H.R. 26, the House-passed TRIA bill; further, that the only amendment in order be an amendment to be proposed by Senator Warren, which is at the desk, with the time until 1:45 p.m. equally divided in the usual form. I further ask that no other amendments or motions be in order, aside from budget points of order, if applicable, and that if a point of order is raised, the motion to waive be considered made. I further ask that following the use or yielding back of time and the disposition of any pending motions to waive, the Senate vote on adoption of the Warren amendment, the bill then be read a third time, followed by a vote on passage of the bill, as amended, if amended; and the votes on the Warren amendment and passage of the bill, as amended, if amended, be at a 60-vote affirmative threshold.
The PRESIDENT pro tempore. Is there objection? Mr. DURBIN. No objection.
