Under the previous order, the motion to proceed to S.3637, TAG bill, was agreed to. Senator Reid then filled the “amendment tree” with technical amendments and filed cloture on the bill. The cloture vote is expected to occur on Thursday.
For the information of senators, at 4:00pm today, the Senate will execute the order with respect to the Dowdell and Bernal nominations. There will be up to 30 minutes for debate prior to votes on confirmation of the nominations. We expect a roll call vote on confirmation of the Dowdell nomination and a voice vote on confirmation of the Bernal nomination. As a result, senators should expect one roll call vote at approximately 4:30pm today.
