Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) filed cloture on a bipartisan sportsmen’s bill without any Republican amendments.
“I’m open to consideration of amendments to this bill,” Reid said Wednesday. “But they — the Republicans — can’t agree on what amendments they want.
“They want amendments because they want to kill the bill.”
S. 2362 aims to preserve federal lands for hunting, fishing and shooting and has more than 20 Republican co-sponsors. But because Reid won’t allow amendment votes, Republicans are likely to pull their support and filibuster the bill.
“I want to have an amendment process,” Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska), a lead sponsor of the bill, said Wednesday. “We need to have that input from our colleagues.”
