This evening Senator Reid filed cloture on the Mikulski-Shelby substitute amendment #26, as modified, and the underlying bill, H.R.933, the Continuing Resolution. However, we hope to reach an agreement to complete action on the bill without cloture.
The filing deadline for first degree amendments to the substitute and underlying bill is 1:00pm tomorrow, Thursday, March 14. If cloture is invoked, germane amendments must have been filed at the desk prior to the deadline to be considered in order post-cloture. Please send a signed copy of the amendment to the cloakroom prior to the deadline so that we may file it at the desk for you. If you have already filed, there is no need to re-file.
