Cloture not invoked tax extenders; next vote Tuesday

Cloture was not invoked on the Wyden substitute amendment #3060 (tax extenders) by a vote of 53-40. Senator Reid changed his vote to "no" and entered a motion to reconsider the failed vote at a later time.

-          Confirmation of Executive Calendar #732, Gregg Jeffrey Costa, of Texas, to be United States Circuit Judge for the Fifth Circuit and

-          Motion to Invoke cloture on Calendar #768, the nomination of Stanley Fischer, of New York, to be a Member of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System.

Additional roll call votes are possible Tuesday evening.
