Tax substitute amendment pending to HR 1

The Wyden motion to commit re: middle class tax cuts was not agreed to by a vote of 48-51. Senator McConnell then offered Hatch-Murkowski substitute amendment #1618, which is the text of the Budget Committee reported tax/ANWR amendment.

When the Senate completes its business today, it will convene at 10:30am tomorrow. When the Senate resumes consideration of H.R. 1 tomorrow, there will be 1 hour of debate remaining on the substitute.  

Roll call votes are expected to occur throughout the day on Thursday in relation to motions to commit and amendments to the tax bill. There will be no further roll call votes tonight.
