    McCONNELL. Mr. President, I ask unanimous consent that the Senate proceed to the immediate consideration of H.J. Res. 78, which was received from the House; that the joint resolution be read a third time and the Senate vote on passage of the resolution with no intervening action or debate.

    The PRESIDING OFFICER. The clerk will report the joint resolution by title.

    The legislative clerk read as follows: A joint resolution (H.J. Res. 78) making further continuing appropriations for fiscal year 2016, and for other purposes.

    There being no objection, the Senate proceeded to consider the joint resolution.

    The joint resolution was ordered to a third reading and was read the third time.

    The PRESIDING OFFICER. Is there further debate on the joint resolution? If not, the joint resolution having been read the third time, the question is, Shall the joint resolution pass? The joint resolution (H.J. Res. 78) was passed.

    Mr. McCONNELL. Mr. President, I ask unanimous consent that the motion to reconsider be made and laid upon the table.
