The House will not move to change the filibuster rules to allow a majority of the Senate to block a legislative piece of legislation.
The House also has voted to pass a bill to allow senators to filibuster a Senate-approved bill, and to prevent filibusters on bills that are not “emergency measures” and “must pass by the end of the regular session.”
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., has said he would like to see the Senate approve a bill that would require senators to vote against filibusters, but he did not rule out a vote to block the filibuster altogether.
On Monday, McConnell said he hopes to get a bill before the Senate for consideration this week.
That bill would require a majority vote in the Senate before the president could sign an executive order blocking a piece of the budget.
McConnell said in the statement that the Senate would take its time in the coming weeks to “work through this issue and to work through any amendments to the Senate bill.”
The Senate will not vote on the bill, according to the statement.
McConnell has said the Senate will vote on a “resolution to amend the Budget Control Act, H.R. 1670, as soon as it is ready.”
The bill will then go to the House.
The statement said the House would vote on legislation that would “immediately and fully repeal the Budget and Economic Control Act of 2009, including its $4.2 trillion annual increase in spending, its $1 trillion in new taxes, and its $824 billion in spending cuts.”
McLennan said on Twitter on Monday that the House is considering the bill that was approved by the Senate on Monday.
The Senate will now take its vote on that.
It is very important to note that the bill passed by the House of Representatives will NOT have any impact on the Senate, nor on any future budget, the statement said.
But the House voted to approve the budget resolution with a 52-48 vote, according a summary of the vote provided by House Democratic Whip Steny Hoyer, D-Md.
He said the vote shows “that the American people will support a budget that includes $1.6 trillion in cuts to Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security, which is $1,600 a person per person, not to mention the trillions of dollars in tax increases that the GOP has demanded for years.”
A Senate spokesman did not immediately return a request for comment.
Earlier in the day, Senate Democrats announced they had introduced legislation that, among other things, would allow them to move quickly on legislation to repeal or reduce the spending caps imposed on the House and the Senate in the last fiscal year.
House Democrats also announced they would introduce legislation on Monday to create an “Emergency Budget Resolution” that would be put to the floor for debate within two weeks.
Senate Democrats also released a statement calling on President Trump to sign the Senate resolution, as well as a House resolution, in order to keep the federal government open.
