The Senate has reached an agreement to vote on confirmation of the Olguin and Durkin nominations at 5:30pm on Monday, December 17. We expect a roll call vote on the Olguin nomination and a voice vote on the Durkin nomination.
The agreement is as follows:
On Monday, December 17, 2012, at 5:00 p.m., the Senate will proceed to Executive Session to consider the following nominations:
– Executive Calendar #833 Fernando M. Olguin, of California, to be United States District Judge for the Central District of California; and
– Executive Calendar #875 Thomas M. Durkin, of Illinois, to be United States District Judge for the Northern District of Illinois.
There will be 30 minutes for debate equally divided in the usual form. Upon the use or yielding back of time the Senate will proceed to vote without intervening action or debate on Cal. #833, and 875 in that order; the motions to reconsider will be considered made and laid upon the table with no intervening action or debate. No further motions are in order.
