Thursday: NDAA (for real) in the House, TAG program in the Senate

With that problem fixed, the House should approve a motion to conference with the Senate, and will also hear a Democratic motion to instruct conferees on the NDAA, H.R. 4310.

The House will also take up three suspension bills:

H.R. 4053, the Improper Payments Elimination and Recovery Improvement Act,

S. 3315, the GAO Mandates Revision Act, and

S. 1379, the D.C. Courts and Public Defender Service Act.

The Senate meets at 9:30 a.m. and will continue work on a bill from Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) that would extend a federal guarantee program for certain bank accounts.

Republicans may raise a budget point of order against the bill. If so, the Senate will vote at noon on a Democratic motion to waive that point of order, followed by a motion to end debate on the bill.

If the GOP does not raise the point of order, the Senate will only vote on the motion to end debate on the bill.

The Senate might also vote today on some judicial nominations.
