Following leader remarks, the Senate will resume consideration of Executive Calendar #119, Lee Francis Cissna, of Maryland, to be Director of United States Citizenship and Immigration Services.
The Senate will recess from 12:30pm until 2:15pm for the weekly caucus meetings.
As a reminder, Senator McConnell filed cloture on the following nominations:
Unless an agreement is reached, Tuesday will be the intervening day on cloture and the first of the cloture motions - on the Cissna nomination - will ripen one hour after the Senate convenes on Wednesday, October 4th and the Senate will vote on the motion to invoke cloture. The remaining cloture motions will ripen upon disposition of the previous nomination, in the order listed.
