    REID. Mr. President, following leader remarks the Senate will resume consideration of the nomination of Caitlin Halligan to be U.S. circuit judge for the DC Circuit. At 10:30 there will be a vote on that nomination. We all know the weather is inclement. It is getting worse, as I saw coming in.



    I have talked to Senator McConnell today. We are going to vote on the judge at 10:30. We have the Brennan nomination that we are going to finish this week. I have explained to the Republican leader that if they are going to filibuster that--and I understand that is what they are going to do--we could set up a 60-vote threshold filibuster, and then we can go ahead and have a vote on that today, allowing people to make proper travel arrangements. It is strictly up to the minority. We are ready to make that arrangement, if they so agree, because of the weather.
