By Chad Pergram-Capitol Hill
Sens. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Mike Lee (R-UT) have won. For now.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) has just succesfully gotten the Senate to agree to have a series of procedural votes tomorrow around 12:30 pm et…
One would be cloture to halt all debate on the bill…and then pass the CR.
There was no objection this time.
That means that the House will get the revamped CR sometime tomorrow afternoon.
The vote series will include a vote to halt all debate, needing 60 yeas…
Also, an amendment vote…needing 51 yeas…to restore the Obamacare money gutted in the House bill..and fund the government through November 15 (unlike the House bill which ran through December 15)….
And then final passage of the bill..probably sometime in the 1 pm or 2 pm et hour.
That vote will need just 51 yeas.
