Cloture filed on Palk and McFadden nominations

Senator McConnell has filed cloture on the following nominations:

  • Executive Calendar #117, Scott L. Palk, of Oklahoma, to be United States District Judge for the Western District of Oklahoma; and
  • Executive Calendar #179, Trevor N. McFadden, of Virginia, to be United States District Judge for the District of Columbia.

We expect the first cloture vote to occur Wednesday morning. If cloture is invoked, there would be up to 30 hours of debate prior to a vote on confirmation of the nomination. Upon disposition of the Palk nomination, there would be a cloture vote on the McFadden nomination. If cloture is invoked, there would be up to 30 hours of debate prior to a vote on confirmation.

We could see consideration of the CFPB resolution of disapproval as early as tomorrow. There would be up to 10 hours of debate on the resolution of disapproval.
