Schedule for Thursday, January 24, 2019
for Thursday, January 24, 2019
The Senate stands adjourned until 11:00am on Thursday, January 24, 2019.
Following Leader remarks, we expect that Senator McConnell will make a motion to proceed to S.1, Strengthening America's Security in the Middle East Act of 2019. The time until 12:30pm will be equally divided between the two Leaders or their designees.
At approximately 12:30pm, we expect a live quorum and subsequent vote on the motion to instruct the Sergeant at Arms to request the presence of absent senators.
As a reminder, during Tuesday’s session, the Senate proceeded to H.R.268, Supplemental Appropriations Act of 2019. Senator McConnell then called up Shelby amendment #5 (Trump’s funding and immigration proposal) and Senator Schumer called up amendment #6 (text of H.R.268, Emergency Supplemental with CR through February 8). The Senate reached an agreement that it be in order to file cloture on the two amendments during Thursday’s session of the Senate, and that any cloture motions filed on these amendments be treated as if they were filed during Tuesday’s session of the Senate and ripen at 2:30pm on Thursday, January 24th in the order filed.
This would result in 2 cloture votes (60-vote thresholds) at 2:30pm on the President’s proposal and the Emergency Supplemental appropriations with a CR through February 8.
Thursday, January 24th at approximately 12:30pm – 1 roll call vote
If a quorum is not present, then:
1. Motion to instruct the Sergeant at Arms to request the presence of absent senators.
Thursday, January 24th at 2:30pm – 2 roll call votes
1. Motion to invoke cloture on McConnell for Shelby amendment #5 (Trump’s funding and immigration proposal)
