Tuesday: Disclose Act again in the Senate

In response to that failed vote, Senate Democrats staged an all-night protest on the Senate floor, during which they called for another vote and chastised Republicans for failing to support what they said is a common-sense bill supported by most Americans.

But when Democrats seek to limit debate again, the result is unlikely to change. Every voting Republican voted against the bill, and every voting Democrat except Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) voted for it. Reid only voted against it to maintain the right to call it up again.

The Monday vote was technically a vote on whether to limit debate on a motion to proceed to the bill, and a similar vote will occur Tuesday.

The House meets at noon for speeches, then at 2 p.m. to consider up to five suspension bills, with roll call votes at 6:30 p.m. The suspension bills are:

• S. 2039, to allow a state or local government to construct levees on certain properties otherwise designated as open space lands.

• S. 1959, the Haqqani Network Terrorist Designation Act, as amended.

• H.R. 6018, to authorize appropriations for the Department of State for fiscal 2013.

• S. 2165, the United States-Israel Enhanced Security Cooperation Act.

• S. 2009, the Insular Areas Act.
