Vitter objects to calling up Inhofe amendment

Senator Inhofe asked unanimous consent to set aside the pending amendment in order to consider Inhofe-Carper amendment #1851 (to modify the federal purchase of renewable energy requirement). Senator Vitter objected. Senator Vitter wants an agreement to vote on his healthcare amendment before any other amendments are considered.

Senator Udall (CO) spoke about an amendment on energy retrofitting of schools that he would like to call up but will refrain from offering until there is no objection to setting aside the pending amendment.
