12:00pm The Senate began a 15 minute roll call vote on the motion to invoke cloture on the motion to proceed to S.2223, the Minimum Wage Fairness Act;
Not Invoked: 54-42
For procedural reasons, Senator Reid changed his vote to no and then he entered a motion to reconsider the failed cloture vote at a later time. The motion to proceed to S.2223 remains pending. At 4pm, we will turn to Executive Session and proceed to a series of 6 votes on confirmation of district judge nominations.
