Roll Call Vote on Reid motion to table Reed amendment #2631

The Senate passed the FARM bill conference report by a vote of 68-32.

Following the vote, Senator Reid withdrew the pending motion to proceed to Cal. #297, S.1950, Comprehensive Veterans Health and Benefits and Military Retirement Pay Restoration Act of 2014.

Then, in order to make it procedurally possible to call up a new Reed amendment (3 month paid for extension of UI benefits), Senator Reid withdrew the motion to commit S.1845 by consent and asked to withdraw Reid amendment #2631. Senator McConnell reserved his right to object and asked that the pending amendments be withdrawn and that Senators be permitted to offer amendments in an alternating fashion.

Senator Reid objected to the modification without an agreement to vote on passage of the bill and Senator McConnell objected to withdrawing the Reed amendment. Senator Reid then moved to table Reed amendment #2631.

At 3:06pm, the Senate began a 15 minute roll call vote on the Reid motion to table the Reed amendment #2631;
