Schedule for Tuesday, February 3, 2015

The Senate stands adjourned until 10:00am on Tuesday, February 3, 2015.

Following any Leader remarks, the Senate will be in a period of morning business for one hour with the time equally divided with the Democrats controlling the first half and the Republicans controlling the final half.

Following morning business the Senate will proceed to the consideration of Calendar #6, H.R.203, Clay Hunt Suicide Prevention for American Veterans Act, until 12:00 noon with the time equally divided and controlled in the usual form. At 12:00pm, the Senate will vote on passage of H.R.203.

Last week, Senator McConnell moved 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, and filed cloture on the motion. By consent, the cloture vote will occur at 2:30pm. The time from 2:15 until 2:30pm will be equally divided. If cloture is invoked, all post-cloture time will be yielded back and the Senate would proceed to a vote on the motion to proceed to the bill.

The Senate will recess following the vote on H.R.203 (approximately 12:30pm) until 2:15pm to allow for the weekly caucus meetings.
