Coburn amendments objected to

Senator Coburn asked unanimous consent to set aside the pending amendments in order to call up the following amendments:

-       Coburn #753 (delinquent tax debts and Federal employment)

-       Coburn #751 (charitable organizations)

-       Coburn #767 (duplicative and overlapping programs)

-       Coburn #766 (prohibit presidential election campaign funds for part conventions)

Senator Durbin objected to setting aside the pending amendment and said that he would take a look at the amendments to see if we can come up with an agreement to consider them. Some of the amendments would create a blue slip issue in the House, a situation he would like to avoid.

Senator Coburn also expressed his intent to call up an amendment regarding the tax exempt status of sport organizations.
