Amendments, Tabled and Passed
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell successfully moved forward motions to table the amendments proposed by Senators Chris Murphy, D-CT, and Dianne Feinstein, D-CA. Those amendments had failed to pass cloture motions earlier in the day.
Mr. McConnell also put forward an amendment for Senator John McCain, R-AZ, amendment 4787 to 4685. The amendment empowers intelligence agencies to use National Security measures to access metadata without a warrant.
