Senate THUD Fails Cloture Test

Yesterday the Senate failed to close debate on S 1243, the Transportation, Housing and Urban Development, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2014. The cloture vote failed by a partisan vote of 54 – 43. At the same time the House leadership pulled HR 2610, the House version of the bill, from consideration on the floor of the House. These two bills are shaping up to be a major focus of the budget conflict between the conservative wing of the Republican Party and the Democrats.

No more action will be taken on either bill until after the Congress returns on September 9th.
