8pm roll call vote on Wyden motion re: middle class tax cuts

The Senate agreed to proceed to H.R. 1 by a vote of 52-48. The bill is now pending. By consent, at 8:00pm, there will be a vote on the Wyden motion to commit regarding middle class tax cuts. Text of motion can be found below. Following the vote, Senator McConnell will be recognized. We expect at that point he will offer the a substitute amendment.

           THE CLERK: THE SENATOR FROM OREGON, MR. WYDEN, MOVES TO COMMIT
