We are close to reaching an agreement to begin a long series of roll call votes shortly—in the next 5-10 minutes or so. The first votes will be on the following:
– Cloture on the motion to proceed to S.1723, Teachers and First Responders Back to Work Act of 2011
– Cloture on the motion to proceed to S.1726, Withholding Tax Relief Act of 2011
Further, we expect to lock in an agreement on a path forward on HR, 2112, the Agriculture/CJS/THUD appropriations bill. The subsequent votes will be in relation to the appropriations bill.
When the agreement is reached, another message will be sent.
