The managers of the Defense Authorization bill are trying to reach an agreement to limit first degree amendments to the bill. However, no agreement has been reached yet.
As a result of this impasse, Senator Reid filed cloture on S.3254. The cloture vote will occur following the judge vote (Grimm nomination) at 5:30pm Monday, December 3. The filing deadline for second degree amendments to S.3254 is 4:00pm Monday. If your senator has a germane amendment and would like to preserve their ability to offer, please send a signed copy of the amendment to the cloakroom so that we may file it at the desk for you. If you have already filed, there is no need to re-file.
