  •  Just Spoke to Reid's Office (2+ / 0-)

    They denied that he had decided to bring up the Intelligence Committee bill.  I asked how he could refuse to honor a hold from Dodd and they said he had not announced one way or the other.  They didn't deny anything, they just said he hasn't decided what he's going to do.

    Hard to believe.

    •  Reid's Office confirms SSCI (4+ / 0-)

      Selise at FDL has gotten through to a reliable Reid Aide that confirms SSCI version is advancing:

      just confirmed by a aide in reid’s office (who’s been very helpful in the past):

      I’m told that this afternoon Reid intends to bring a motion to proceed under regular order for the Intelligence committee’s FISA bill. The Judicary bill is pending legislation. Since Senator Dodd has a hold on the intelligence committee version of the bill, there will be a motion to invoke cloture. The cloture vote is expected to be held one hour after the Senate begins on Monday (since Saturday will be a work day for the Senate, and there is a 2 day wait after filing for cloture). 60 votes will be required for the cloture vote on the Intelligence bill Monday. If it passes, then amendments will be considered (Senator Specter’s bill, the Judiciary Bill, and/or others). Controversial amendments will require 60 votes to pass. 30 hours later, on Wednesday, the final vote will be taken.

        This just makes me ill. Still hope in the House, though, right?
