The Senate Cloakroom: Nov. 9 – 13

Posted By Dan Holler On November 8, 2009 @ 3:01 pm In Energy | Comments Disabled

Analysis –
With Veterans’ Day on Wednesday, the Senate will have a shorter than normal workweek – Monday and Tuesday. Senators will spend the remainder of the week back home honoring veterans and, presumably, hearing from constituents about health care. The timeline for Senate action on the Reid-Obama health care bill is ever changing, which suggests substantial problems exist. A score from the Congressional Budget Office could come as early as next week.

Major Floor Action –

  • On Monday, the Senate will vote on the nomination of Andre Davis to be a Circuit Judge for the Fourth Circuit.
  • The Senate will likely complete the Military Construction and Veterans Affairs Appropriations bill (H.R.3082) on Tuesday, in time for Veterans’ Day.

Major Committee Action –
