Motion to proceed to S.J.Res.8, NLRB joint resolution of disapproval, agreed to 53-45--McConnell begins Rule 14 process on Iran bill

The motion to proceed to S.J.Res.8 (NLRB) was agreed to by a vote of 53-45. There will now be up to 10 hours for debate prior to a vote on passage of the joint resolution. We expect this vote to occur tomorrow morning (possibly in the 11:15am range, but that has not been set yet).

Prior to the vote, Senator McConnell began the Rule 14 process to place on the Calendar of Business S. 625, a bill to provide for congressional review and oversight of agreements relating to Iran's nuclear program. S.625 is nearly identical to S.615, which is in the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. The difference between the two bills is a change in the enactment date.
