Toomey motion to appeal ruling of the chair--12:15pm roll call vote on passage of the CR

This morning Senator Reid moved to proceed to S.1846, Homeowner Flood Insurance Affordability Act of 2013.

After Leader remarks, Senator Toomey attempted to offer the Coburn amendment #2606 (prohibit unemployment compensation for those whose adjusted gross income is greater than $1 million in the preceding year) to S.1845, the Emergency Unemployment Benefits Act. The Chair ruled that offering an amendment to S.1845 was not in order because the motion to proceed to S.1846 was the pending business.

Senator Toomey then moved to appeal the ruling of the Chair that the amendment is not in order. The motion to appeal is a debatable motion. No vote is scheduled at this time.

Under the previous order, at 12:00 noon, the Senate will turn to the consideration of H.J.Res.106, making further continuing appropriations for fiscal year 2014 (CR). At approximately 12:15pm, the Senate will proceed to a roll call vote on passage of H.J.Res.106.
