As a reminder, yesterday Senator McConnell filed cloture on the Corker-Cardin amendment #1140
(substitute) and H.R.1191
, the legislative vehicle for the Iran Nuclear Agreement Review Act of 2015. As a result, the filing deadline for first degree amendments to the substitute and underlying bill is 1:00pm today
. Second degree amendments must be filed one hour prior to the cloture vote. If cloture is invoked, amendments must be germane and timely filed to be considered in order post-cloture.
If your senator has an amendment, please send a signed copy of the amendment to the cloakroom so that we may file it at the desk for you. If you have already filed, there is no need to re-file.
The Senate is in a period of morning business until 10:45am with senators permitted to speak therein for up to 10 minutes each.
