Following any Leader remarks, the Senate will be in a period of morning business for 1 hour with senators permitted to speak therein for up to 10 minutes each. Following morning business, the Senate will resume consideration of H.R.1735, NDAA.
As a reminder, during Thursday's session of the Senate, Senator McConnell filed cloture on McCain substitute amendment #1463 and the underlying bill, H.R.1735, NDAA. The filing deadline for all first degree amendments to both H.R.1735 and the McCain substitute amendment is Monday at 4:00pm. 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.
At 5:00pm, the Senate will enter Executive Session to consider Executive Calendar #131, Matthew McGuire, to be US Executive Director of the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development, and Executive Calendar #132, Gentry Smith, to be Director of the Office of Foreign Missions. There will be 30 minutes for debate equally divided prior to a vote on the nominations in the order listed.
