    DURBIN. Mr. President, reserving the right to object--I am sorry, I was discussing with the staff. If the Senator will please repeat her request.

    Ms. COLLINS. I asked unanimous consent to proceed for up to 15 minutes as in morning business, and since my remarks do not pertain to the debate for the Keystone Pipeline, that the time not be charged to either side in that debate.

    Mr. DURBIN. I have no objection.

    The PRESIDING OFFICER. Without objection, it is so ordered.

    Priorities of Senate Special Committee on Aging Ms. COLLINS. Mr. President, it has been my privilege to serve on the Senate Special Committee on Aging since my very first days in the Senate, and I am honored to have been elected to chair this committee for the 114th Congress. I wish to welcome the Presiding Officer, Senator Cotton of Arkansas, to the committee. He will be a new member on our committee, and I believe he will enjoy his service as much as I have.
