TOOMEY FOLDS ON UBC, JOINS SCHUMER, MANCHIN AND KIRK IN COMPROMISE BILL

http://www.politico.com/story/2013/0...mey-89806.html

Apparently, there will be a press release tomorrow announcing the compromise deal. Currently, 14 Republicans are filibustering any debate on S.649 (the base gun control bil by opposing the motion to proceedl). Reid will have a cloture vote on Thursday. If he gets 60 votes, he will open the bill to amendments from the floor and they will debate and vote on amendments (including this one from Toomey). Once they have voted on all amendments we will have one more chance to filibuster (the motion to end debate) the entire amended bill.
