Senate Amendments to HR 4350 – 11-29-21

Yesterday, the Senate resumed their consideration of HR 4350, the FY 2022 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). There were 25 new amendments proposed for the Senate’s consideration, none were of particular interest here. The Senate held a cloture vote to close debate on the substitute language amendment (SA 3867), the vote failed by a vote of 45 to 51 (60 votes required for passage) with liberal Democrats joining most Republicans in voting against closing the debate.. The vote failed because of the lack of an agreement on what amendments to SA 3867 would be considered before the final vote on the substitute language was held. The Senate will continue consideration of HR 4350 today.

Note: Sen Schumer’s (D,NY) ‘nay’ vote was made after cloture failed and did not reflect opposition to the cloture move. It was made to allow him (under Senate rules) to request reconsideration of the cloture vote, which he did. No word yet on when that vote will occur.
