CLOTURE VOTE SCHEDULED FOR TUESDAY MORNING

Rate this Entry

OK, here's what I'm being told. On Tuesday at 11 am eastern, the Senate is scheduled to vote on a cloture motion first for HR 800, the Card Check bill. If this succeeds, the Senate will then vote on cloture on S.1639, the immigration bill.



If cloture passes, the first 20 minutes of debate will be devoted to a Budget Act point of order being pushed by Senator Sessions, the bill's chief opponent. This presumably has to do with the fact that this bill makes appropriations and such bills are supposed to originate in the House. But this requirement can be waived with the consent of both Houses and that's presumably what Senator Reid will try to accomplish.



The Senate will then move on to debating 20 or so amendments which I'll be describing shortly.
