cloture filed on S.1619; filing deadline 1pm Wednesday

During Tuesday's session of the Senate, Senator Reid filed cloture on S.1619, the Currency Exchange Rate Oversight Reform Act.  As a result, the filing deadline for all first degree amendments is at 1:00pm on Wednesday, October 5, 2011.  If your Senator has a germane first degree amendment to the bill and would like to preserve his or her right to offer, please send a signed copy of the amendment to the cloakroom prior to the deadline so that we may file it for you.  If you have already filed, there is no need to re-file.

Unless an agreement is reached, the cloture vote on S.1619 will occur Thursday morning.
