Following Leader remarks, the Senate will be in a period of morning business for one hour with Senators permitted to speak therein for up to 10 minutes each with the Majority controlling the first half and the Republicans controlling the final half.
Following morning business, the Senate will resume consideration of H.J.Res.66, a joint resolution regarding Burma Sanctions and the legislative vehicle for additional FEMA funds.
As a reminder, Senator Reid filed cloture on the Reid substitute amendment #602 (the text of the Burma language and the FEMA language) and H.J.Res.66 during Wednesday’s session. Unless an agreement is reached, a cloture vote on the Reid substitute amendment #602 will occur Friday morning. The filing deadline for all first degree amendments to the Reid substitute amendment #602 and H.J.Res.66 is 1:00pm on Thursday, September 15th.
We hope to reach an agreement to complete action on H.J.Res.66 and H.R.2887, the FAA and Highway extensions during Thursday’s session of the Senate. Senators will be notified when votes are scheduled.
