September 29: The Senate will convene at 9:30 a.m. and will be in a period of morning business until 10:00 a.m. with the time equally divided between the two Leaders or their designees.

At 10:00 a.m. the Senate will proceed to vote on adoption of the conference report accompanying H.R. 5631, the Department of Defense Appropriations bill.

Upon disposition of the Defense conference report, the Senate will resume the post cloture debate on H.R.6061, the Border Fence bill.

As a reminder, cloture was filed on Wednesday on the House Message on S.403, the Child Custody Act. That vote will occur upon disposition of the Border Fence bill.

Roll call votes are expected to occur throughout the day on Friday. If the Senate is unable to complete our work on Friday, the Senate will be in session on Saturday.
