Cloture filed on MTP to HR 240, DHS approps

Prior to adjourning today, Senator McConnell filed cloture on the motion to proceed to Calendar #5, H.R.240, a bill making appropriations for the Department of Homeland Security for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2015. Unless an agreement is reached, the cloture vote would occur one hour after the Senate convenes on Thursday, February 5. As a reminder, Senator McConnell entered a motion to reconsider today's failed cloture vote on the motion to proceed to the same bill and Senator McConnell could move to reconsider that vote tomorrow.
