Budget votes expected tomorrow eveningTomorrow we anticipate the Republicans will move to go to conference on the Senate budget resolution. Once the compound motion to go to conference is made, there would be 1 hour for debate on the motion. We expect a roll call vote on the compound motion to go to conference on the budget resolution in the 11:45am range.
There would then be up to an additional 9 hours for debate equally divided (1 of the 10 statutory hours would have been used prior to the vote). Upon the use or yielding back of time, motions to instruct conferees would be in order.
Therefore, we expect a mini-votearama (hopefully only in the 9 to low double digit vote range) in the late afternoon or early evening (depending on how much debate time is required-maybe in the 5pm range).
The Senate will recess from 12:30pm until 2:00pm for the bipartisan luncheon.
