Schedule for Tuesday, March 3, 2015

The Senate stands adjourned until 9:45am on Tuesday, March 3, 2015.

Following any Leader remarks, the Senate will be in a period of morning business until 10:30am with the time equally divided and with the Republicans controlling the first half and the Democrats controlling the final half.

The Senate will recess from 10:30 until 2:15pm to allow for the Joint Meeting of Congress with His Excellency Benjamin Netanyahu, the Prime Minister of Israel, as well as the weekly caucus meetings. As a reminder, senators should gather in the Senate Chamber to proceed as a body to the Hall of the House of Representatives at 10:30am.

Prior to adjourning, Senator McConnell filed cloture on the veto message on S.1, an act to approve the Keystone XL Pipeline. Unless an agreement is reached, the cloture vote would occur one hour after the Senate convenes on Wednesday.
