Tuesday, May 24, 2005 - Senators compromise on filibusters - May 23, 2005

Bipartisan group agrees to vote to end debate on 3 nominees

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- A bipartisan group of senators announced Monday evening that they had reached an agreement after days of talks to avert a showdown Tuesday over President Bush's judicial nominees.

Under the agreement, three nominees for appellate courts stalled by Democratic filibusters will go forward and two others will remain subject to filibuster.

The group's members also agreed that they would oppose attempts to filibuster future judicial nominees except under "extraordinary circumstances."


Under the deal, the senators will allow three of Bush's controversial nominees to come to a vote: Owen, Janice Rogers Brown and William Pryor.

The group made no commitment to vote for or against a filibuster on two nominees, William Myers and Henry Saad.

Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid later welcomed the deal and indicated Democrats would continue to filibuster Myers and Saad, likely dooming their nominations.
