The legislation will be considered under an open rule, meaning members can offer an unlimited number of amendments. Debate is expected to go late into the night, as it did earlier this week when the House considered the Transportation, Housing and Urban Development (THUD) appropriations bill.

The Senate starts at 9:15 a.m. on Wednesday and at 10 a.m. it will take the first procedural vote to advance a student loan refinancing bill.

It is unlikely that enough Republicans will join Democrats to advance the measure, which is paid for by raising taxes on millionaires.
