Senate to vote Tuesday on bin Laden resolution

The Senate will vote on a resolution at 3:30 p.m. Tuesday to honor members of the military and intelligence community involved in the mission that killed Osama bin Laden.  

The resolution, crafted by Senate leaders in both parties on Monday afternoon, is expected to honor both President Obama and former President George W. Bush for directing the nearly decade-long hunt for bin Laden.

According to Majority Leader Harry Reid's (D-Nev.) spokesman, Jon Summers, senators will be seated at their desks in the chamber for the vote, a fairly rare ceremonial move that signifies the gravity of the vote. 

Summers announced the timing of the vote in a post on Twitter:

"Sen 2 vote @ 3:30 on resolution honoring servicemen & intelligence comm on mission that killed Osama bin Laden. Sens will be seated @ desks"
