Pox American reports that
As of this moment, Senator Robert Byrd is having a fight on the Senate floor over the procedures currently set forth in the Senate rules for this debate. Under the pressure of Senator Daschle, they are heading towards a vote on cloture for 10:15 AM tomorrow morning — cloture being the end of the debate, and the start of the final hours leading up to an actual vote on the resolution itself.
Senator Byrd is requesting that by unanimous consent, the Senate remove that 10:15 AM vote on cloture, because they Senate has only been debating this issue since the end of last week, and that being too short a time for such a wighty issue.
Now is the moment to make your voice heard over the phone to your state’s Senators. Call and ask each to support Byrd’s request to remove tomorrow’s 10:15 AM vote on cloture. Or if the actual resolution comes to a vote, to vote against it. DO IT before it’s too late!
