Schedule for Thursday, January 5, 2017

The Senate stands adjourned until 10:00am on Thursday, January 5, 2017.

Following any Leader remarks, the Senate will resume consideration of S.Con.Res.3, FY2017 budget resolution.

As a reminder, today the Senate adopted the motion to proceed to the consideration of S.Con.Res.3. Under the law governing the Budget's consideration, the Senate is in 50 hours for debate equally divided on the concurrent resolution. Each first degree amendment is subject to 2 hours for debate equally divided and second degree amendments are subject to 1 hour for debate equally divided (within the 50 hours). Votes on amendments are possible each day. Upon the use or yielding back of time, the Senate will dispose of any pending amendments. There is no limit to the number of amendments that can be offered at the end of the debate time and before a vote on adoption of the concurrent resolution. As a result, there will be a number of roll call votes at the end of that time. We expect to begin the so-called "vote-a-rama" next week. We will send messages as information becomes available on the amendments that will receive roll call votes.
