Recess until 2:15pm--NLRB joint resolution of disapproval this afternoon

The Senate is in recess until 2:15pm to allow for the joint meeting with His Excellency Binyamin Netanyahu, the Prime Minister of Israel, and then the weekly caucus meetings. At 2:15pm, we expect Senator McConnell to turn to the consideration of S.J.Res.8, a joint resolution providing for congressional disapproval under chapter 8 of title 5, United States Code, of the rule submitted by the National Labor Relations Board relating to representation case procedures, at 2:15pm. It is unclear if a roll call vote will be requested on the motion to proceed. After the motion to proceed is adopted, the joint resolution would be subject to up to 10 hours for debate. We expect to vote on passage of the joint resolution tomorrow morning prior to the cloture vote on the Keystone veto override. Senators will be notified if a roll call vote is required on the motion to proceed today.
