Ana Ernst hates the Standing Rules but doesn't like the bare-bones bill at vote. After speaking to the President, she decides getting rid of the Standing Rules is more important and caves.

We will now consider the nominees submitted by the President."

"Madam President, seeing the objections raised by the Honourable Senators and the fact that we must begin debate over these nominees, I move to begin twenty-four hours of debate over Secretary-designate of Foreign Affairs Polly Handsom (Merizoc), Secretary-designate of Finance and Economic Development Dr. Emily Ndereba (Coconut Isle), and Attorney General-designate Salvador O'Hara (Beta Test). During this period of debate, Senators may deliberate over the nominations and ask questions of the nominees themselves."

We can consider more than three at once. That was a restriction of the repealed Standing Rules. In fact, we are already in the business of considering all of them.

I think this was meant to be posted here.

Also, I apologize for the last minute notice. Collatis will be replacing Merizoc as my nominee for foreign secretary. Sorry for the inconvenient timing.
