Senate reconvenes; McConnell offers Collins/Johnson amendments to H.R.2578; 2 roll call votes expect at 2:00pm todayThe Senate has reconvened.
Senator McConnell withdrew the pending motion to recommit H.R.2578, CJS Approps, and moved to commit the bill to the Judiciary Committee with instructions (text of Collins SA #4858) and ordered the yeas and nays.
Senator McConnell then offered an amendment to the instructions (Johnson amendment #4859, adding due process) and asked for the yeas and nays. He then offered a second-degree amendment #4860 (date change).
The time from 1:15pm until 2:00pm is equally divided between the two Leaders or their designees. We expect 2 roll call votes at 2:00pm today in relation to the Johnson and Collins amendments.
