Senate Democrats

Schedule for Monday, February 6, 2017

The Senate stands adjourned until 12:00 noon on Monday, February 6, 2017.

 

Following any Leader remarks, the Senate will resume consideration of the nomination of Betsy DeVos to be Secretary of Education, post-cloture.

 

The confirmation vote on the DeVos nomination is expected on Tuesday, February 7. Procedural votes are possible on Monday, February 6 (in the 6:00pm range).

 

As a reminder, cloture has also been filed on the Sessions (Attorney General), Price (HHS), and Mnuchin (Treasury) nominations. Those cloture motions will ripen upon disposition of the previous nomination in the order filed. Each nomination is subject to 30 hours of post-cloture debate, prior to a vote on confirmation.
