The Senate will move to a final vote on passage of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) authorization bill Thursday night, Floor Action Blog has learned.


Prior to that there will be three roll-call votes on amendments proposed by Sen. Tom Coburn (R-Okla.) as well as one other.

Senate leadership brokered a deal with Coburn Thursday afternoon that allows three of his five amendments to receive a vote. In exchange he will allow the final vote on FAA to go forward without delay.


The FAA bill has been stalled before the Senate for nearly three weeks.
