Text of McConnell SA#667 (skinny ACA repeal), Murray motion pending, votes expected around midnight

Senator McConnell has offered amendment #667 (the so-called "skinny repeal" or the Health Care Freedom Act of 2017).

Senator Murray made a motion to commit the bill to the HELP committee with instructions to report the same back to the Senate within 3 days, not counting any day on which the Senate is not in session, with changes that are within the jurisdiction of such committee. There will now be 2 hours for debate equally divided. Upon the use or yielding back of time (around midnight), the Senate will vote in relation to the Murray motion, McConnell amendment #667, and then any other motions or amendments in the so-called vote-a-rama.
