The Senate will have an 11:30 a.m. ET roll call vote on whether to invoke cloture to proceed to the outsourcing bill the body debated on Monday. The measure is expected to get fewer than the 60 votes necessary to consider the bill further.
If cloture is not invoked, the Senate will then hold another roll call vote on whether to proceed to what is known in Washington-speak as the continuing resolution. The continuing resolution, or CR, is a stopgap-funding bill Congress uses to keep the government operating in lieu of a formal appropriations process. The CR will keep the federal government running at 2010 funding levels starting on October 1, when the new fiscal year begins.
