    REID. Mr. President, a few minutes ago I filed cloture on the House [[Page S381]] message to accompany the omnibus bill. Under the rule, the vote will be Friday morning. I have had a number of requests to see if that can be moved forward. I am waiting to see if we can get consent to do that.

    We also had a lot of activity on the floor today regarding flood insurance. On our side, Senator Landrieu has worked extremely hard with others, but she has been the lead person. On the other side, the Republicans have had Senator Isakson working extremely hard.

    I hope that we can move forward. We are going to move forward on it one way or the other. If we are not able to get an agreement to move forward on it, setting up the situation to have some amendments and move forward, which we have agreed to, then we will file cloture.

    It is a shame that we would have to do that on a totally bipartisan bill. But that is how things work around here sometimes.
