Senate Schedules Budget Votes

Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) was able to reach a unanimous consent agreement earlier tonight that locked in votes tomorrow on the budget measure (H.R. 1473) to fund the government for the remainder of this fiscal year.

According to The Hill, Senators “will also vote on two resolutions, one to ban federal funds for Planned Parenthood, another to defund the new healthcare law.”

All votes will be subject to a 60-vote threshold for passage. They will begin shortly after the House finishes their work on the funding measure, which Senators hope will be in the afternoon.
