Morning Business until 12:30pmDuring Leader remarks, Senator McConnell moved to proceed to H.R.240, a bill making appropriations for the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) for FY2015. The Senate is currently in a period of morning business until 12:30pm, with the time equally divided and controlled between the two Leaders or their designees.
The Senate will recess from 12:30-2pm to the joint caucus luncheon.
As a reminder, Senator McConnell could reconsider the failed cloture vote on the motion to proceed to the DHS appropriations bill. We expect he will do that this afternoon (could be in the 2:30pm range). Another message will be sent when we have a better idea of timing and the process that will be required to reconsider the vote.
