Cloture filed on CR and MTP to Sportsman bill

The Senate adopted the motion to proceed to H.J.Res.117, Continuing Resolution, by a vote of 67-31. Senator Reid then filled the amendment tree with technical amendments and filed cloture on the joint resolution.

Senator Reid then moved to proceed to S.3525, a bill to protect and enhance opportunities for recreational hunting, fishing, and shooting, and filed cloture on the motion.

We are working on an agreement to wrap up votes on the CR and the Sportman's bill today, however, if no agreement can be reached, the cloture vote on the CR would occur as early as 1am Saturday morning.
