Cloture filed on substitute amendment and underlying bill, S.722

This evening Senator McConnell filed cloture on the committee substitute amendment to S.722, Iran Sanctions, and on the underlying bill.

Unless an agreement is reached, the cloture vote on the substitute amendment will be one hour after the Senate convenes on Thursday, June 14th. If cloture is invoked, upon the use or yielding back of post cloture time, there will be a vote on adoption of the amendment followed by an immediate cloture vote on the underlying bill, S.722.

Discussions continue on a path forward to completing action on the bill.
