Today In The Senate

The Senate will convene at 3:00 p.m. and proceed to a period of morning business for up to one hour, with Senators permitted to speak for up to 10 minutes each.

Note: The above reference to "morning business" -- at 3:00 p.m. -- is not written in error. Morning business is a phrase used to describe the routine stuff that usually happens in the first two hours of a legislative day. It usually is in the morning but, if the Senate first convenes in the afternoon, "morning" business will occur then.
