Lawmakers are debating the voting thresholds that will be required to advance proposed amendments to the Senate immigration bill. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., wants five proposals to meet a 60-vote threshold, while Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, seeks a 50-vote threshold for six amendments in a bid to increase the likelihood of revising the measure. The disagreement could keep Congress working in Washington during the Fourth of July.
