The maintain is a parliamentary process whereby any senator can block a movement from reaching the Senate ground. Much like a filibuster, the Senate can break a maintain with a cloture vote, however that’s time-consuming and should clear a 60-vote threshold.

“I clearly help Jen Easterly to be the director of CISA, she’s bought the suitable background to have the ability to do the job, [and] it has no reflection on her nomination, however I’m going to carry all nominations together with hers till the president visits the border,” Mr. Scott stated at a committee assembly on Wednesday. “I believe the president wants to go to the border and inform us how he’s going to handle the disaster.”
