No more votes today--11am Thursday cloture vote on MTP to gun safey bill

Sally Jewell was confirmed to be Secretary of the Interior by a roll call vote of 87-11.

The Senate then resumed consideration of the motion to proceed to S.649, Safe Communities, Safe Schools Act of 2013. There will be no further roll call votes during today's session of the Senate.

The cloture vote on the motion to proceed will occur around 11:00am tomorrow, Thursday, April 11. If cloture is invoked, there would be up to 30 hours for debate on the motion to proceed. Once we are on the bill, the first amendment that will be considered to the gun safety bill will be a Manchin-Toomey amendment on background checks. If we don't get cloture, we will have votes on capacity clips, assault weapons, background checks and some mental health items or item.
