Reid seeks to file cloture on the measure today, setting up a procedural vote on it by Friday, at the latest. 

To file cloture, the majority leader will have to dispose of the pending motion by Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.) on capital gains and dividends and a motion by Senate Finance Chairman Max BaucusMax BaucusChina moves to lift ban on US beef Overnight Healthcare: Zika fight stalls government funding talks | Census finds big drop in uninsured | Mental health bill faces wait Glover Park Group now lobbying for Lyft MORE (D-Mont.) on extenders, sources told The Hill. It is not clear if Reid will be able to get unanimous consent to withdraw these motions. If he doesn't, he might have to table those motions in order to move the new bill.
