New Reid amendment offered to the Surface Infrastructure bill

Following the vote on the pay roll tax conference report, the Senate resumed consideration of S.1813, the Surface Transportation bill. Under a previous order, the Reid amendment #1633 and the amendments on the “amendment tree” were withdrawn. Senator Reid then called up Reid amendment #1730, which adds to the bill the Banking title, Finance title, and a new compromise Commerce title.

The Senate is now in a period of morning business with senators permitted to speak therein for up to 10 minutes each.

There will be no further roll call votes
