  The PRESIDING OFFICER. Under the previous order, pursuant to rule 
XXII, the Chair lays before the Senate the pending cloture motion, 
which the clerk will report.
  The assistant legislative clerk read as follows:

                             Cloture Motion

       We, the undersigned Senators, in accordance with the 
     provisions of rule XXII of the Standing Rules of the Senate, 
     do hereby move to bring to a close debate on the pending 
     first-degree amendment (No. 4177) to Calendar No. 490, S. 
     2045, a bill to amend the Immigration and Nationality Act 
     with respect to H-1B non-immigrant aliens:
         Trent Lott, Gordon Smith of Oregon, Judd Gregg, Wayne 
           Allard, Conrad Burns, Craig Thomas, Rick Santorum, Thad

           Kay Bailey Hutchison, Connie Mack, George Voinovich,

  The PRESIDING OFFICER. The question is, Is it the sense of the Senate 
that debate on amendment No. 4177 to S. 2045, a bill to amend the 
Immigration and Nationality Act with respect to H-1B non-immigrant 
aliens, shall be brought to a close? The yeas and nays are required 
under the rule. The clerk will call the roll.
  The legislative clerk called the roll.
  Mr. NICKLES. I announce that the Senator from Arizona (Mr. McCain) 
and the Senator from Wyoming (Mr. Thomas) are necessarily absent.
  Mr. REID. I announce that the Senator from California (Mrs.
