Schedule for Wednesday, September 14, 2016

The Senate stands adjourned until 9:30am on Wednesday, September 14, 2016.

Following any Leader remarks, the Senate will be in a period of morning business until 11:00am, with the Democrats controlling the time from 10:00am to 10:30am, and the Republicans controlling the time from 10:30am to 11:00am.

Following morning business, the Senate will resume consideration of S.2848, WRDA.

At 2:45pm, all post-cloture time with respect to Inhofe-Boxer substitute amendment #4979, as amended, will be considered expired.

We expect the Republicans to raise a budget point of order against the substitute tomorrow. If raised, the Senate would vote on the motion to waive the budget point of order.

If waived, the Senate would then vote on adoption of the substitute amendment, as amended. The Senate will then immediately vote on the motion to invoke cloture on S.2848, as amended, if amended.

By consent, if cloture is invoked, the post-cloture debate time will count as if cloture was invoked at 1:00am, Wednesday, September 14th.

2:45pm- up to 3 votes (2 roll call votes expected):

  • Motion to waive the budget point of order
  • Adoption of Inhofe-Boxer substitute amendment #4979, as amended (voice vote expected).
  • Motion to invoke cloture on S.2848, WRDA, as amended, if amended.
