1:00pm filing deadline reminder, 1:45pm vote expected on Patenaude nomination (Deputy Secretary of HUD)

The Senate has resumed consideration of H.R.2810, NDAA.

As a reminder, cloture was filed on the substitute and underlying bill. If cloture is invoked, amendments must be germane and timely filed to be considered in order post-cloture. The filing deadline for first degree amendments is 1:00pm today. Negotiations continue on a path forward to finish the bill.

We seem to be heading in the direction of executing the order with respect to the Patenaude nomination (Deputy Secretary of HUD) today, which would result in a roll call vote around 1:45pm.
