Majority Leader Schumer Floor Remarks On Advancing The National Security Supplemental

Washington, D.C. – Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) today spoke on the Senate floor to give an update on the Senate’s continued work to advance the national security supplemental. Below are Senator Schumer’s remarks:

Today, the Senate took the next significant step towards passing the national security supplemental, by voting on cloture on the substitute 67-27. That is a strong signal that this bill has the support it needs to get through this chamber. 

Advancing this bill today was precisely the right thing to do. Our friends abroad are watching closely how we vote in the upcoming days. Ukrainian fighters are watching. And you can be sure Vladimir Putin is watching the Senate too.

For the information of Senators, the Senate will be back in session tomorrow at noon to consider post-cloture debate. We hope to be able to keep moving forward on this bill tomorrow. Members should expect a live quorum at noon.


And again, as I have already made clear: we will keep working on this bill until the job is done.
