Schedule for Tuesday, October 24, 2017
The Senate stands adjourned until 10:00am on Tuesday, October 24, 2017.
Following leader remarks, the Senate will resume consideration of the House Message to accompany H.R.2266, Emergency Supplemental Appropriations, post-cloture. We expect that a vote on the motion to concur is likely during Tuesday’s session.
The Senate will recess from 12:30pm until 2:15pm to allow for the weekly caucus meetings.
As a reminder, during today’s session Senator McConnell 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 Tuesday. There would be up to 10 hours of debate on the resolution prior to a vote.
