Schedule for Tuesday, March 15, 2016

The Senate stands adjourned until 10:00am on Tuesday, March 15, 2016.

Following any Leader remarks, the Senate will be in a period of morning business until 12:30pm with senators permitted to speak therein for up to 10 minutes each.

The Senate will recess from 12:30pm until 2:15pm to allow for the weekly caucus meetings.

At 2:15pm, the Senate will resume consideration of the message to accompany S.764.

As a reminder, during today's session Senator McConnell moved to concur in the House amendment (Defund Planned Parenthood Act of 2015) to S.764 (National Sea Grant College Program Amendments Act of 2015), with an amendment, which is McConnell for Roberts amendment #3450 (GMO labeling). Senator McConnell filed cloture on the motion to concur with amendment. He then moved to refer S.764 to the Commerce Committee.

The cloture vote on the motion to concur would occur one hour after the Senate convenes on Wednesday, March 16, unless an agreement can be reached. The filing deadline for second degree amendments to amendment #3450 is 1 hour prior to the cloture vote.
