Following the prayer and pledge, the Majority Leader will be recognized. It is his intention to resume consideration of the motion to proceed to S.3240, the Farm bill.
Following the remarks of the Majority Leader and the Republican Leader, the next hour will be equally divided between the two sides with the Republicans controlling the first half and the Majority controlling the final half.
As a reminder to all Senators, cloture was filed on the motion to proceed to S.3240 on Tuesday, June 5th. If no agreement is reached, the cloture vote will occur on Thursday, June 7th; however, we hope to reach an agreement to begin consideration of the bill during Wednesday’s session.
We also hope to get an agreement to vote on a judicial nomination during Wednesday’s session.
