The motion to proceed to S.743, Marketplace Fairness Act, was adopted 75-22. Senator Reid then offered the Enzi-Durbin perfecting amendment #741 (Manager’s technical amendment) and filed cloture on the bill. Under the rule, the cloture vote would occur 1 hour after the Senate convenes on Friday.
Senator Donnelly is now giving his maiden speech. We will resume consideration of the Marketplace Fairness Act following his remarks.
