The Senate stands adjourned until 10:00am on Tuesday, July 31, 2018.
 
Following Leader remarks, the Senate will resume consideration of Executive Calendar #1006, Britt Grant, of Georgia, to be U.S. Circuit Judge for the Eleventh Circuit, post-cloture.
 
At 12:15pm, the cloture motion that was filed with respect to the House message (4-month extension of the National Flood Insurance Program) to S.1182 will be withdrawn and the Senate will vote on the motion to concur (passage).
 
The Senate will recess following the vote on S.1182 until 2:15pm to allow for the weekly caucus meetings.
 
At 2:15pm, the Senate will vote on confirmation of the Grant nomination and the motion to invoke cloture on Shelby amendment #3399 (substitute) to H.R.6147, Minibus II (FSGG/Interior/THUD/Ag).
 
As a result of cloture having been filed on H.R.6147, Minibus II, and the Shelby substitute amendment, the filing deadline for 2nd degree amendments is one hour prior to the cloture vote.
