The Senate stands adjourned until 12:00pm on Sunday, February 11, 2024.
Following Leader remarks, the Senate will resume consideration of Cal. #30, H.R. 815, legislative vehicle for National Security Act, 2024.
As a reminder during Friday’s session Senator Schumer filled the tree and filed cloture on Murray substitute amendment #1388 and the underlying bill. At approximately 1:00pm the cloture motions will ripen and the Senate will vote on the motion to invoke cloture on the Murray substitute amendment #1388. At this time, we expect Senator Lee to make a motion to table the pending motion to commit in order to offer his amendment. Senators should expect two roll call votes starting at approximately 1:00pm.
If cloture is invoked there would be up to 30 hours of post-cloture debate, followed by a roll call vote on adoption of the substitute amendment.
As a result of cloture having been filed, the filing deadline for second degree amendments is one hour prior to the cloture vote, if cloture is invoked. Amendments must be germane and timely filed to be in order post-cloture.
Conversations continue on a path forward for completion of the bill. Additional roll call votes are possible during Sunday’s session.
Sunday, February 11 at approx. 1:00pm – 2 roll call votes expected:
If a motion to table is made, then:
1. Motion to table the pending motion to commit
