Cloture filed on Defense Authorization-4pm Monday second degree amendment filing deadlineThe managers of the Defense Authorization bill are trying to reach an agreement to limit first degree amendments to the bill. However, no agreement has been reached yet.
As a result of this impasse, Senator Reid filed cloture on S.3254. The cloture vote will occur following the judge vote (Grimm nomination) at 5:30pm Monday, December 3. The filing deadline for second degree amendments to S.3254 is 4:00pm Monday. If your senator has a germane amendment and would like to preserve their ability to offer, please send a signed copy of the amendment to the cloakroom so that we may file it at the desk for you. If you have already filed, there is no need to re-file.
