Senator Sessions objects to going to conference on Budget resolution after House passes clean CR

Senator Murray asked unanimous consent that when the Senate receives a Message from the House that they have passed H.J.Res.59, as amended by the Senate, the Senate go to conference on the Budget resolution (H.Con.Res.25, as amended with the text of S.Con.Res.8)

Senator Sessions objected and said that a unanimous consent request he could agree to would be to go to conference on the Budget resolution and that it not be in order for the Senate to consider a conference report that includes reconciliation instructions to raise the debt limit.
