Schedule for Wednesday, November 19, 2014

The Senate stands adjourned until 9:30am on Wednesday, November 19, 2014.

Following any Leader remarks, the Senate will be in a period of morning business. The time from 1:00-2:00pm will be under control of the Republicans and from 2:00-3:00pm will be under control of the Majority.

During Tuesday's session, Senator Reid filed cloture on the following 5 district court nominations:

  • Executive Calendar #928, Pamela Pepper, of Wisconsin, to be a US district judge for the Eastern District of Wisconsin;
  • Executive Calendar #930, Brenda K. Sannes, of New York, to be United States District Judge for the Northern District of New York;
  • Executive Calendar #1032, Madeline Cox Arleo, of New Jersey, to be United States District Judge for the District of New Jersey;
  • Executive Calendar #1033, Wendy Beetlestone, of Pennsylvania, to be United States District Judge for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania; and
  • Executive Calendar #1034, Victor Allen Bolden, of Connecticut, to be United States District Judge for the District of Connecticut.
We hope to reach an agreement Wednesday morning to move the cloture votes to Wednesday afternoon (possibly 3pm) and, if cloture is invoked, conduct the confirmation votes on Thursday. If no agreement can be reached, the first cloture vote would occur 1 hour after the Senate convenes on Thursday, November 20. Senators will be notified when the next vote is scheduled.
