The Sanders amendment #965 (GMO food labeling) was not agreed to 27-71. We are working on an agreement to have additional votes after the 2pm vote on the Srinivasan nomination. Another message will be sent if an when an agreement is reached.

 

Senator McCaskill asked unanimous consent to go to conference on the Budget resolution and that 2 motions to instruct conferees on each side relative to the debt limit and taxes/revenue be in order.

 

Senator Lee asked that she modify her request to prohibit consideration of a conference report that includes reconciliation instructions to increase the debt limit. Senator McCain urged Senator Lee to allow the Senate to vote on motions to instruct conferees to go to conference. Senator McCaskill objected to modifying her request.
