5:30pm roll call vote reminder; 3:30pm filing deadline today

As a reminder, during Thursday's session last week, Senator McConnell filed cloture on Inhofe-Boxer substitute amendment #4979 and on the on the underlying bill S.2848, the Water Resources Development Act.

The filing deadline for 1st degree amendments to the substitute and underlying bill is set for 3:30pm today.

At 5:30pm today, there will be a roll call vote on the motion to invoke cloture on the Inhofe-Boxer substitute amendment. If cloture is invoked, there would then be up to 30 hours of debate followed by a roll call vote on adoption of the amendment. The cloture motion on the underlying bill would then immediately ripen and the Senate would vote on the motion to invoke cloture on S.2848, as amended, if amended. If cloture is not invoked on the substitute amendment, the Senate would immediately vote on the motion to invoke cloture on the underlying bill.

5:30pm on Monday, September 12, 2016 - one roll call vote expected
