“This is something we have to do now because it changes policy for our fighting men and women around the world,” Reid said Wednesday night after the Senate failed to advance the Cybersecurity Act. “We’re going to move to the bill.”
“If we move to the bill we’ll have an open amendment process on this bill,” Reid said. “We would start legislating on this bill the day we get back after the Thanksgiving break.”
Republicans have criticized Reid for filling the amendment tree and not having an open amendment process on all votes.
