Cloture filed on CR/Caps deal

The Chair laid before the Senate a message to accompany H.R.1892. Senator McConnell moved to concur with a further amendment (text of CR to March 23rd/caps agreement) and filed cloture on the motion to concur. He then filled the amendment tree and made a motion to refer the bill to the Committee on Appropriations with instructions and filled the amendment tree.
As a result of cloture being filed, there are filing deadlines for first and second degree amendments with respect to H.R.1892 (CR/caps). The filing deadline for first degree amendments is 1:00pm tomorrow, Thursday, and the filing deadline for second degree amendments is one hour prior to the cloture vote, if cloture is invoked.

We expect the cloture vote on the motion to concur during tomorrow’s session, Thursday 2/8.
