Senator McConnell asked Senator Reid to modify his request so that the bill would be subject to a 60 vote threshold. Senator Reid declined to modify his request and McConnell objected to the request to vote on the debt limit bill.
Senator Reid then moved to proceed to Calendar #554, S.3637, a bill to temporarily extend the transaction account guarantee program (TAG) and filed cloture on the motion to proceed.
The 1pm caucus has been cancelled. There will be no further roll call votes during today's session of the Senate.
