Senate Agreement on Omnibus

The Senate has reached an agreement that results in a series of roll call votes to complete action on the Omnibus. When the Senate receives a message from the House to accompany H.R. 2029, the Majority Leader will be recognized to make a motion to concur in the House amendments.

Senators will be notified when the first vote in this series is scheduled, but we anticipate up to 4 roll call votes in the morning on Friday, December 18:

  1. Motion to invoke cloture on the motion to concur in the House amendments to the Senate amendment to H.R.2029 (Omnibus); if motion to table is made, then
  1. Motion to table the first amendment (Omnibus) to the Senate amendment to H.R.2029; if budget point of order is raised, then
  1. Motion to waive budget points of order with respect to H.R.2029; and
  1. Motion to concur in the House amendments to the Senate amendment to H.R.2029.
