Following any Leader remarks, the Senate will be in a period of morning business until 11:00am 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 S.1867, the Department of Defense Authorization Act, post-cloture. By unanimous consent, all time during adjournment and morning business will count post-cloture on S.1867.
We expect to complete action on S.1867 during Thursday’s session.
Additionally, during Wednesday’s session, the Majority Leader filed cloture on the motion to proceed to S.1917, the Middle Class Tax Cut Act of 2011. Unless an agreement is reached, this vote will occur Friday morning.
