McConnell files cloture on S.1790, NDAA
The Senate agreed to the motion to proceed to S.1790, National Defense Authorization Act, by a vote of 86-6.
Senator McConnell then offered Inhofe substitute amendment #764, as modified, filed cloture on the amendment, and filled the amendment and motion trees. He then filed cloture on the underlying bill, S.1790. Absent an agreement, the cloture motions will ripen one hour after the Senate convenes on the second legislative day. If cloture is invoked, amendments must be germane and timely filed.
As a result of cloture having been filed, the filing deadline for first-degree amendments is 1:00pm tomorrow, Tuesday. The filing deadline for second-degree amendments is one hour prior to the cloture vote.
