332 bytes added, 03:04, August 19, 2019
The '''Majority Leader''' and [[Minority Leader]] are elected by their respective party conferences to serve as the chief [[Senate]] spokesmen for their parties and to manage and schedule the [[legislative]] and executive business of the [[Senate]]. By custom, the [[Presiding Officer]] gives the floor leaders priority in obtaining recognition to speak on the floor of the [[Senate]].<ref>[https://www.senate.gov/reference/glossary_term/appropriation.htm] US Senate Reference</ref>
