Kayatta, to be circuit judge for the First Circuit, with 30 minutes for debate, equally divided in the usual form; that upon the use or yielding back of time, the Senate proceed to vote without intervening action or debate on the nomination; the motion to reconsider be considered made and laid on the table, with no intervening action or debate; that no further motions be in order; that President Obama be immediately notified of the Senate's action, and the Senate then resume legislative session.

    The PRESIDING OFFICER. Is there objection? Without objection, it is so ordered.

    Mr. REID. Madam President, I suggest the absence of a quorum.

    The PRESIDING OFFICER. The clerk will call the roll.
