Reid Parks 'minibus' spending bill in amendment dispute
from Roll Call
Well, so much for that idea. The Senate's appropriations process seemed to fall apart on June 19 as the first fiscal 2015 "minibus" found itself with flat tires. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., had one of their all-too-familiar floor exchanges that afternoon, during which Reid proposed an agreement to take up the three-bill spending package with an amendment process that would require 60 votes for amendments to be adopted.
