The Senate stands adjourned until 9:30am on Wednesday, November 20, 2013. Following any Leader remarks, the Senate will be in a period of morning business for one hour for debate only with the Majority controlling the first half and the Republicans controlling the second half.
Following morning business, the Senate will resume consideration of S.1197, the National Defense Authorization Act. There will be up to 6 hours for debate only on the issue of sexual assault with the time divided as follows:
- Senator Gillibrand, or her designee controlling three hours;
- Senators McCaskill and Ayotte, or their designees, each controlling 75 minutes;
- Ranking Member Inhofe, or his designee, controlling 20 minutes; and
- Chairman Levin, or his designee, controlling 10 minutes.
We hope to reach an agreement to vote on the sexual assault-related amendments during Wednesday’s session.
