Snow Delays Senate Votes for Another Day

Monday’s snowstorm will delay the Senate’s work for another day.

Over the weekend, senators agreed to push back a scheduled vote to limit debate on the nomination of Debo P. Adegbile to be the assistant attorney general in charge of the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division. Now, that vote and those already scheduled to follow won’t take place until 11:45 a.m. Wednesday, according to a senior Democratic aide.

The Senate’s scheduled to come into session at 2 p.m. Monday, and Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., are both around. The pair has a meeting scheduled for later Monday afternoon with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Some senators have been spotted around Washington, including Arizona Republican John McCain, but many are likely dealing with flight delays and cancellations caused by the winter storm that’s struck a large portion of the country.

The further delay of the Adegbile cloture vote caused by the snow and the fact that several nominations are lined up for votes thereafter raises doubts the Senate will make much progress by week’s end on a child care and development block grant measure championed by Sen. Barbara A. Mikulski, D-Md., with bipartisan support.

At this point, the House is still scheduled to hold the first votes of the week on Tuesday.

    The liberty school realizes that those quacks who exploit democratic processes for their own purposes may destroy liberty and prosperity.
