Second Procedural Vote on HJ Res 117

Yesterday the Senate passed one more hurdle on the way to an actual vote on HJ Res 117, the Continuing Appropriations Resolution, 2013 by a somewhat bipartisan vote of 67-31. This should mean that there will be an actual vote today on the measure but there is an interesting election year fight going on in the Senate that might delay a vote (and the subsequent election adjournment) through the weekend.

Again, this is important to the chemical security community because the CR includes a six month extension of the CFATS program and slightly increases the funding for that program (and essentially the whole government) during that period.
