This is the latest information from last night and this morning. Also, I have included the proposed communication methods during the furlough. Hopefully this will not last long and something will be worked out by Monday. We realize that membership will be extremely concerned and wanting current information as soon as possible. Please share information regularly with your membership and keep them in the loop with all we know. Please cc Dawn and me on all you communications sent to your state email tree.

The Leader might move to amend the bill to the three weeks, Dems could offer their amendment, etc....All should fail.  


So....kinda/sorta unclear at the moment.


Government shutdown begins @ midnight.  


4:09 am


Senate just had a procedural vote on the motion to table the motion to refer with respect to the House message to accompany H.R.195, CHIP/One Month CR (this was a procedural vote that made space on the amendment tree for a date change amendment to be slotted in – CR funding until February 8, 2018).

 

Vote time is TBD (not tonight) on the Feb. 8 CR amendment (with CHIP and ACA tax delays).
