  • New Bills Introduced in Senate

    Two versions of the Hagel/Martinez compromise bills were introduced into the Senate. S.2611 & S.2612 are said to be identical. One will go to the Judiciary Committee and the other may go to the straight to the Senate floor.

        It gives the Judiciary Committee the opportunity to continue its work on a bill while also having a bill ready that can be brought immediatly to the Senate floor under rule 14 if it is necessary to bypass the Committee. Sen. Frist invoked the latter method to bring his own bill straight to the floor.

        A bill can't be yanked out of a committee on a whim. It has to go through the process. It must be voted on by the members and reported to the Senate floor.

          swo, are we going to see debate on the bill as soon as they comes back from recess, or will frist wait for a month or more before putting the bill to another vote?

            The Senate is scheduled to start working on an supplemental appropriations bill on the 25th. This is a very important bill that covers funding for the wars in Iraq & Afghanistan and national security. It definitely needs to get done. They also have a lot of other things already on the calendar. Sen. Specter has stated he will resume work on the immigration bill in the Judiciary Committee on the 27th.

            It's up to Sen. Frist to decide if and when any immigration bill will be debated on the floor. He controlles the schedule in the Senate. I don't expect the Senate to revisit immigration until the appropriations bill is passed.
