    REID. On the matter now before the Senate, how much of the time that remains is controlled by the Democrats? The PRESIDING OFFICER. There is 147 minutes.



    Mr. REID. That is a little over 2 hours. How much time for the Republicans? The same? The PRESIDING OFFICER. There is 130 minutes for the Republicans.

    Mr. REID. Oh, I see. Why don't we yield back 130 minutes of our time. That would leave us 14 minutes or something like that? The PRESIDING OFFICER. Seventeen minutes.

    Mr. REID. That is far too much time. I yield back another 10 minutes.

    The PRESIDING OFFICER. The majority leader's time is now set to 7 minutes.

    The PRESIDING OFFICER. The Republican whip.
