UI vote/s moved to 2pm today--Baucus confirmation vote expected today
The previously scheduled cloture vote on the Reed amendment #2714
(3 month extension of unemployment insurance benefits paid for with pension smoothing/no UI for millionaires) to S.1845
, Emergency Unemployment Compensation Extension Act, will now occur at 2:00pm
today. If cloture is invoked, there would be up to 30 hours for post-cloture debate on the amendment. If cloture is not invoked, there would be an immediate cloture vote on the underlying UI bill, S.1845
. We also expect to vote on confirmation of Senator Baucus's nomination today. Senators will be notified when the debate (up to 60 minutes) and vote on the Baucus nomination are scheduled.
