On Thursday the Senate officially began the consideration of S 1243, the Transportation, Housing and Urban Development, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2014. No action was taken beyond the Clerk’s reading of the title of the bill in and the first cloture motion being submitted. Actual action will begin next week with the vote on the cloture motion to close debate on proceeding to consider the bill on Tuesday.
No amendments to S 1243 were filed on Thursday or Friday (only a pro forma session Friday so nothing could be filed then in any case. I expect that we will start to see the amendment process crank up on Tuesday.
