Cloture filed on Iran nuclear agreement

This evening Senator McConnell filed cloture on McConnell substitute amendment #2640 and on H.J.Res.61, the legislative vehicle for the Congressional disapproval of the proposed Iran nuclear agreement. The cloture motion would ripen on Friday, but Senator McConnell said he is hopeful we'll be able to get consent to have the vote tomorrow afternoon.

As a result of cloture being filed, the filing deadline for first degree amendments to the substitute and underlying joint resolution is 1:00pm tomorrow, Thursday, September 17. Amendments must be germane and timely filed if cloture were to be invoked.
