U.S. Senate

Senate Floor Activity
Senate Majority Leader McConnell made the following announcement regarding the Senate calendar.

On Monday (October 5, 2020), I intend to obtain a consent agreement for the Senate to meet in pro forma sessions for the next two weeks. Previously-scheduled floor activity will be rescheduled until after October 19th.

The important work of the Senate’s committees can and will continue as each committee sees fit. The Senate Judiciary Committee will convene on October 12th as Chairman Graham has scheduled to begin confirmation hearings for Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s nomination to the Supreme Court. The Senate’s floor schedule will not interrupt the thorough, fair, and historically supported confirmation process previously laid out by Chairman Graham.


Since May, the Judiciary Committee has operated flawlessly through a hybrid method that has seen some Senators appear physically at its hearings while other members have participated virtually. The Committee has utilized this format successfully for many months while protecting the health and safety of all involved. Certainly, all Republican members of the committee will participate in these important hearings.


Elaine and I continue to pray for President Trump, the First Lady, and all of those impacted by COVID-19.


BACKGROUND: Senators will be given at least 24 hours notice should votes need to occur during the pro forma posture.
