Senate Democrats

Senate has resumed consideration of the House Message on H.R.3304, NDAA, post-cloture–2 votes at 11:14pm expected

The Senate has resumed consideration of the House Message on H.R.3304, the National Defense Authorization Act, post-cloture. If all time is used, at approximately 11:14pm tonight the Senate will proceed to a roll call vote on the motion to concur in the Senate amendment to the House amendment to H.R.3304, NDAA (passage).

 

As a reminder, on Monday Senator Reid filed cloture on several Executive nominations. Upon disposition of the Defense bill, there will be a live quorum prior to a cloture vote on the Mayorkas nominations. If cloture is invoked, there would  be up to 8 hours for debate prior to a vote on confirmation of the nomination. Upon disposition of the Mayorkas nomination, there will be a mandatory live quorum prior to a cloture vote on the Koskinen nomination. If cloture is invoked, there would be up to 8 hours for debate prior to a vote on confirmation of the nomination.

 

We’ll repeat the general sequence of a live quorum (unless we obtain consent to waive the quorum), a cloture vote, some debate time, and then confirmation vote until we’ve worked through the nominations listed below.

 

Senators will be notified if an agreement can be reached and the schedule changes, but at this time senators should be prepared for 2 votes at approximately 11:14pm. Additional procedural votes are possible today and during the voting sequence. Senators are encouraged to be on the floor for the live quorums so that a quorum can be established quickly.
