objections in relation to H.R.3521, Veterans Clinic Leases

This afternoon, Senator Landrieu asked unanimous consent the Veterans' Affairs committee be discharged from further consideration of H.R.3521, the Department of Veterans' Affairs Major Medical Facility Lease Authorization Act of 2013.

Senator Lee, on Senator Coburn's behalf, objected to the request and asked Senator Landrieu to modify her request to include a Vitter amendment, which is at the desk.

Senator Sanders objected to Senator Lee's modification.

The unofficial transcript of the exchange is below.
