Agreement regarding sequestration bills

The Senate reached an agreement that on either Monday, February 25th or Tuesday, February 26th, the Majority Leader and the Republican Leader each be permitted to introduce a bill to replace the sequester required under the Budget Control Act. Further, if a Leader introduces such legislation, his bill would be placed directly on the Legislative Calendar. Finally, motions to proceed to these bills would be in order the day they are introduced.
