Henry Clay Desk
In 1999 the Senate adopted Senate Resolution 89 (106th Congress, 1st session) introduced by Kentucky Senator Mitch McConnell. The resolution specified that the desk traditionally associated with Henry Clay in the Senate Chamber would henceforth be assigned to the senior senator from Kentucky.
In 2006 the Senate adopted Senate Resolution 630 (109th Congress, 2nd session) introduced by Senator Mitch McConnell. The resolution allows the senior senator from Kentucky to reassign the Henry Clay desk to the junior senator from Kentucky when the senior senator serves as party leader.
