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.
