    McCONNELL. Mr. President, I ask unanimous consent that the Senate proceed to executive session to consider individually the following nominations at a time to be determined by the majority leader in consultation with the Democratic leader: Calendar Nos. 305, 306, 360, and 361; that there be 30 minutes for debate for each nomination equally divided in the usual form; that upon the use or yielding back of time on the respective nomination, the Senate proceed to vote without intervening action or debate on the nomination. Further, as in executive session, I ask unanimous consent that all judicial nominations received by the Senate during the 114th Congress, first session, remain in status quo, notwithstanding the provisions of rule XXXI, paragraph 6, of the Standing Rules of the Senate.

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

    Mr. McCONNELL. For the information of our colleagues, it is my intention to schedule each of these nominations for floor consideration and a vote prior to the Presidents Day recess in February.
