Senate Begins Consideration of S 1243 – FY 2014 DOT Spending bill

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.

BTW: The House is not currently scheduled to take up HR 2610, the House version of the bill, according to the Majority Leader’s web site, but that may change as the Rules Committee is scheduled to take up the bill on  Monday evening. More on that in my weekly congressional hearing post.
