The senate voted ... I don't know how to recreate the language...
essentially to prevent filibustering.
Here's the appropriate link:
The next step is that there will be consideration by the House Foreign
Affairs Committee tomorrow (3/25/2014) at 10am.
As Ali writes, "Big issue is tomorrow morning at 1- am the House marks up
their robust package. So we need to hit them with calls/emails pushing
fast passage and IMF letter. Their foreign affairs committee staff were
very interested in the signed joint statement.."
I assume that the signed joint statement was the statement issued by the
US United with Ukraine Coalition statement sent out this a.m.
So as Ali says, please hit your Congressional people with calls and emails
to get fast passage. What's the part about the IMF Letter?
Please get this into your networks far and wide; please call and email
tomorrow pre-10am. Those of you in LA, that means you have to get up
Marta Fedoriw indicated that the Senate is going to vote on Wednesday. Can
we get a verification/confirmation on that please?
More as it becomes available.

> Note: U.S. Senate: At 5:30pm this afternoon 3-24 the Senate will take up its legislation supporting Ukraine, S. 2124. The first action will be to vote whether to invoke cloture on the motion to proceed. [cloture - The only procedure by which the Senate can vote to place a time limit on consideration of a bill or other matter, and thereby overcome a filibuster. Under the cloture rule (Rule XXII), the Senate may limit consideration of a pending matter to 30 additional hours, but only by vote of three-fifths of the full Senate, normally 60 votes.]
> U.S. House of Representatives: Tomorrow 3-25 at 10 a.m. the House Foreign Affairs Committee will consider the House’s legislation supporting Ukraine, H. R. 4278. This is a necessary step towards full House passage.
