                   RECOGNITION FOR 1-MINUTE SPEECHES

  Mr. GARRETT of New Jersey. Mr. Speaker, I seek unanimous consent to 
expand the number of 1-minutes to unlimited.
  The SPEAKER pro tempore. Recognition for 1-minutes is within the 
discretion of the Chair.
  Mr. GARRETT of New Jersey. Mr. Speaker, I seek unanimous consent to 
expand the number of 1-minutes to 10.
  The SPEAKER pro tempore. The Chair is exercising his discretion not 
to recognize more than five 1-minutes on each side.
  Mr. GARRETT of New Jersey. Parliamentary inquiry.
  The SPEAKER pro tempore. The gentleman will state his parliamentary 
inquiry.
  Mr. GARRETT of New Jersey. Within the discretion of the Chair, is the 
Chair responsible for explaining his basis for not expanding the number 
of 1-minutes so the American public can have a greater opportunity to 
hear the debate continue before the vote is taken today?
  The SPEAKER pro tempore. No.
  Mr. GARRETT of New Jersey. I thank the Speaker.
