Schedule for Wednesday, February 15, 2017

The Senate stands adjourned until 10:00am on Wednesday, February 15, 2017.

Following any Leader remarks, the Senate will resume consideration of H.J.Res.40 (CRA re:NICS) with 10 minutes of debate remaining on the joint resolution.

Following disposition of H.J.Res.40, there will be 10 minutes of debate prior to a vote on the motion to invoke cloture on Executive Calendar #16, Mick Mulvaney to be Director of OMB, and if cloture is invoked, the time will be counted as if invoked at 1:00am that day.

As a reminder, during Monday's session Senator McConnell filed cloture on the following cabinet nominations:

  • Mick Mulvaney (Director of Office of Management and Budget)
  • Scott Pruitt (Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency)
  • Wilbur Ross (Secretary of Commerce)
  • Ryan Zinke (Secretary of Interior)
  • Ben Carson (Secretary of Housing and Urban Development)
  • James Richard Perry (Secretary of Energy)
Each cloture petition will ripen upon disposition of the previous nomination, and each nomination is subject to 30 hours of post-cloture debate.
