The Senate proceeded to Executive Session by a vote of 54-42 and Senator Reid filed cloture on the Bough nomination.
We do not expect to have roll call votes on the remaining motions to go in and out of Legislative and Executive sessions for the purpose of filing cloture on the remaining nominations. Shortly there will be a series of voice votes before a series of votes in relation to the CR-Omnibus, HR 83.
Next roll call votes:
- Motion to invoke cloture on the motion to concur in the House amendment to the Senate amendment to H.R.83;
- Procedural vote on a Constitutional point of order. The question will be: Is the point of order well taken? Senator Reid will vote no.
- Motion to concur in the House amendment to H.R.83.
