By June 22, 2007Labor Unions

From the Congressional Record’s Daily Digest:

EMPLOYEE FREE CHOICE ACT/COMPREHENSIVE IMMIGRATION REFORM AGREEMENT : A unanimous-consent agreement was reached providing that at 11:30 a.m., on Tuesday, June 26, 2007, Senate resume consideration of the motion to proceed to consideration of H.R. 800, to amend the National Labor Relations Act to establish an efficient system to enable employees to form, join, or assist labor organizations, to provide for mandatory injunctions for unfair labor practices during organizing efforts, and vote on the motion to invoke cloture thereon; that if cloture is invoked the motion to proceed be agreed to and Senate vote immediately on the motion to invoke cloture on the motion to proceed to consideration of S. 1639, to provide for comprehensive immigration reform, and that if cloture is invoked the motion to proceed be agreed to; provided further, that if cloture is invoked on the motion to proceed to S. 1639, that it be in order, upon the disposition of all post-cloture debate time, for there to be 20 minutes equally divided, for debate only, on a motion to waive the Congressional Budget Act of 1974 in response to a Budget point of order against the bill made by Senator Sessions, or his designee; and that on Wednesday, June 27, 2007, if the Senate is considering S. 1639, Senator Sessions be recognized, for debate only, for up to two hours.

So “card check” and then the immigration bill, starting next Tuesday morning.
