Cloture filed on motion to proceed to H.R.933, Continuing Resolution

We have been unable to reach an agreement to begin consideration of H.R.933, Department of Defense, Military Construction and Veterans Affairs, and Full-Year Continuing Appropriations Act, 2013. As a result of this impasse, Senator Reid filed cloture on the motion. We will continue to work to adopt the motion to proceed tomorrow. If we are unable to adopt the motion, the cloture vote would occur one hour after the Senate convenes on Thursday.

The Senate is in a period of morning business with senators permitted to speak therein for up to 10 minutes each. There will be no roll call votes tonight.
