Objection to Johnson calling up SA 1149--NLRB possibleThe Senate has resumed consideration of H.R.1191, the legislative vehicle for the Iran Congressional Review Act.
Senator Johnson asked unanimous consent to set aside the pending amendment in order to call up Johnson SA #1149, to require any agreement with Iran relating to the nuclear program of Iran to be considered under expedited procedures in both houses of Congress.
Senator Cardin objected. At the end of this email you will find the unofficial transcript of Senator Cardin's objection.
As a reminder, there is an order that it be in order for the Senate to proceed to the veto message on S.J.Res.8, a joint resolution providing for congressional disapproval of the rule submitted by the National Labor Relations Boards relating to representation case procedures, no later than today, April 30, 2015. There is a possibility that we see a vote in relation to the veto message today (2pm range would be a likely target).
