Now voting on cloture on cyber security amendment -- dueling UCs

Senator McCain asked unanimous consent that we vote on cloture on the cyber-security amendment at 3:00pm today and vote on a series of amendments at 11:00am on Tuesday (details of request can be found below).

Senator Reid asked that the request be modified so that the cloture motion on the cyber-security amendment be withdrawn and that the Senate proceed to Calendar #28, S.754, the Burr cyber security bill, upon disposition of the NDAA bill.

Senator McConnell asked that the Reid request be modified that following disposition of H.R. 2865, the Defense Appropriations bill, the Senate consider the Burr cyber-security bill, with 10 relevant amendments on each side, with 60-vote thresholds for the amendments and bill.

Senator Reid asked consent that the Senate proceed to the Burr cyber security bill upon disposition of the NDAA bill.

There were objections to each of the requests.

The Senate then agreed to move the cloture vote on the Burr amendment #1569, as modified (cyber-security) at 3:00pm today.
