The Senate is now debating the conference report to accompany H.R.2112, the Agriculture, CJS and Transportation Appropriations bill, which includes the continuing resolution momentarily. There will be up to two hours of debate equally divided and controlled between the two Leaders or their designees. However, we expect to yield back some debate time and vote as early as 7:00pm. The conference report will be subject to a 60-vote threshold.
Additionally, the Leahy amendment #1072 (National Guard), the Paul amendment #1064 (repeal the Military Force against Iraq Authorization Resolution) and the Merkley amendment #1174 (Afghanistan) were made pending to S.1867, the DoD Authorization Act prior to turning to the conference report to accompany H.R.2112.
