Lawmakers are trying to combine and eliminate many of the amendments considered to be non-controversial, sources with the Senate Committee on Small Business and Entrepreneurship said on Monday. This could help speed up the process.

The legislation itself is relatively non-controversial, but senators from both parties have taken advantage of an agreement struck by Senate leaders in January that allows unlimited amendments to most bills that come to the floor.

One major hurdle to the SBA funding bill was cleared last week when Senate Majority Leader Harry ReidHarry Mason ReidWATCH: There is no Trump-Russia collusion and the media should stop pushing this The demise of debate in Congress ‘North by Northwest,’ the Carter Page remake MORE (D-Nev.) allowed a series of votes on controversial amendments that would have stripped the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) of much of its power to regulate greenhouse gasses. All of the amendments failed.

The following amendments are currently pending on the bill:

• An amendment offered by Sen. David VitterDavid Bruce VitterTrump nominates wife of ex-Louisiana senator to be federal judge Where is due process in all the sexual harassment allegations?
