Reid moves to proceed to HR 933

Prior to the caucus recess, Senator Reid moved to proceed to H.R.933, Department of Defense, Military Construction and Veterans Affairs, and Full-Year Continuing Appropriations Act, 2013.

We expect to adopt the motion to proceed this afternoon. Once we begin consideration of the bill, Senator Mikulski plans to offer a substitute amendment that includes separate divisions for the Fiscal Year 2013 Agriculture; Commerce, Justice and Science; Defense; Homeland Security; and Military Construction and Veterans Affairs Appropriations Acts.

The Senate stands in recess until 2:30pm.
