Cloture filed on MTP to S.2943, NDAA

Senator McConnell moved to proceed to Calendar #469, S.2943, the National Defense Authorization Act, and filed cloture on the motion.

Unless an agreement is reached, the cloture motion would ripen one hour after the Senate convenes on Wednesday, May 25.

Another message will be sent when the vote is scheduled.

Senator McCain then asked unanimous consent that the Senate proceed to the immediate consideration of the bill (S.2943).

Senator Reid objected.
