Congressional Calendar December 22, 2010

Wednesday may be the last day for the 111th Congress.

The Senate returns at 9:00a.m. ET to finish up work on the New START nuclear weapons reduction treaty. There are still two amendments to the agreement with Russia to discuss before holding a vote on ratifying the treaty. The treaty needs 2/3rds of the members present to vote yes in order to be ratified.

After the treaty vote, Sen. Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., is expected to call up the 9/11 Health and Compensation Act. The proposal provides money to provide health care for first responders who were sickened by toxic fumes and debris at the Ground Zero site in the aftermath of the September 11th attacks.

Supporters say that they have the 60 votes needed to end debate in the Senate, but a previous vote on the legislation failed earlier in the year. If the Senate can get through a procedural vote on the proposal and manage to have a final passage vote before the end of the day, the House should be able to pass it as well and send the bill on to the president's desk.
