Cloture filed on motion to proceed to S.388, sequester legislation

This evening Senator Reid moved to proceed to Calendar #18, S.388, American Family Economic Protection Act of 2013 and filed cloture on the motion. Senators should expect the cloture vote to occur on Thursday.

The Senate also reached an agreement that the order with respect to the sequester legislation be modified to permit the Republican Leader to introduce a bill on Wednesday, February 27th, consistent with the language that is at the desk and that all other provisions of the previous order remain in effect.
