Senate Democrats

Vote schedule

The Senate has resumed consideration of Executive Calendar #346, the nomination of Cornelia T.L. Pillard. The post-cloture debate time on the Pillard nomination expires at approximately 12:50am tonight/early morning Thursday, December 12.

 

Upon the use or yielding back of time, the Senate will proceed to vote on confirmation of the Pillard nomination.

 

Upon disposition of the Pillard nomination, there will be a live quorum. Senators are asked to be in their seats for all the live quorums during this process. Once a quorum is established, the Senate will proceed to vote on the motion to invoke cloture on the Feldblum nomination. If cloture is invoked, there would be up to 8 hours for debate equally divided prior to a vote on confirmation of the Feldblum nomination. Upon disposition of the Feldblum nomination, there would be another live quorum followed by a cloture vote on the Wolford nomination. If cloture is invoked, there would be 2 hours for debate equally divided prior to a vote on confirmation of the Wolford nomination. Upon disposition of the Wolford nomination, there would be another live quorum followed by a cloture vote on the McCafferty nomination. If cloture is invoked, then up to 2 hours for debate prior to a vote on confirmation of the McCafferty nomination. So on and so forth until we complete action on the list of nominations at the end of this email.

 

In addition to the expected live quorums, cloture votes, and confirmation votes, we could see other procedural votes such as votes to sustain the ruling of the chair or motions to adjourn or recess. If we yield back all time under majority control and we have no additional procedural votes, this schedule would take us into Saturday evening. Senators should be prepared for votes at all hours of the day and night for near future.
