There will then be a roll call vote on the motion to invoke cloture on the nomination of Pamela Harris, of Maryland, to be U.S. Circuit Judge for the Fourth Circuit. If cloture is invoked ,there would be up to 30 hours of post cloture debate on the nomination.

Disbrow, of Virginia, to be an Assistant Secretary of the Air Force.
