Schedule for Thursday, September 10, 2015The Senate stands adjourned under the provisions of S.Res.250 until 9:30am on Thursday, September 10, 2015.
Following any Leader remarks, the Senate will resume consideration of H.J.Res.61, the legislative vehicle for the Congressional disapproval of the proposed Iran nuclear agreement. Debate will be structured with alternating one hour blocks controlled by the two Leaders or their designees until 4:00pm; the Republicans will control the first hour starting at 10:00am.
As a reminder, during Wednesday session of the Senate, Senator McConnell filed cloture on McConnell substitute amendment #2640 and on H.J.Res.61. 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 10. Amendments must be germane and timely filed if cloture were to be invoked.
