Senate Floor Schedule for Thursday, June 27, 2013


The Senate stands in adjournment until 9:30am on Thursday, June 27, 2013, as a further mark of respect of the late Senator Hathaway of Maine.  Following any Leader remarks, the Senate will resume consideration of S.744, the Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act, with the time until 11:30am equally divided and controlled between the two Managers or their designees, and with senators permitted to speak therein for up to 10 minutes each.

At 11:30am, there will be 3 roll call votes:

-          Confirmation of Confirmation of Executive Calendar #179, the nomination of Anthony Renard Foxx, of North Carolina, to be Secretary of Transportation

-          Adoption of the committee-reported substitute amendment, as amended to S.744 and

-          Motion to invoke cloture on S.744, as amended, if amended.

If cloture is invoked on S.744, post-cloture time will run as if cloture were invoked at 7:00am on Thursday.  We hope to yield back some post-cloture debate time and vote on passage of the Comprehensive Immigration Reform bill Thursday afternoon.
