KYL: GOP READY TO GO AS EARLY AS TODAY

Rate this Entry

Jon Kyl (R-AZ), the chief Republican negotiator on the immigration reform bill, told CNN this morning that the Republican Senators had settled on 10 to 12 amendments as the number they wished to offer and that they would pick the specific amendments today. The announcement coincides with President Bush visiting the GOP Senators on Capitol Hill today, the first such visit in five years. Bush is expected to push the Senators to get the bill moving again.



Kyl stated yesterday his goal of getting the bill done by the Fourth of July. He got a boost when Democrats were unable to stop a filibuster on a no-confidence vote on Attorney General Gonzales. That means that the Senate will need to immediately move on to the next item on their agenda - an energy bill. That will probably take one to two weeks and it is possible that three or so days can be set aside after that to get the immigration bill finished before the Fourth of July recess.
