We've had a couple more amendments offered-Sanders side by side to Blunt and Moran on Veterans health care.

Pending amendments:

  1. Cotton #481(Israel)
  2. Enzi forKirk #535 (Iran Sanctions)
  3. Rounds #412(prevent EPA closed door settlement agreements)
  4. Rubio #423, as modified (increase Defense budget)

The Republican suggestion for votes this afternoon has grown. They added the rest of their currently pending amendments to the list of possible votes today (not included is the Rubio amendment to increase Defense budget). We do not expect to vote on all of these amendments tonight; however, I wanted to share the larger universe. Senator Gardner also hopes to offer amendment #443 (water rights) this afternoon. That amendment could be added to the mix if it's made pending.
