1 vote at 12:15, 1 vote at 2:30, and 1 vote at TBD (Perez and McCarthy)By consent, the vote on confirmation of the Perez nomination will occur at 12:15pm today. Following disposition of the Perez nomination, the time until 2:30pm will be equally divided in the usual form prior to the cloture vote on the McCarthy nomination. If cloture is invoked on McCarthy, there would be up to 8 hours for debate prior to a vote on confirmation. However, we hope to be able to yield a good portion of that time back.
