Subject: [NFB-Legislative-Directors] Senator Thune to Speak at 10:45 a.m. Eastern




Senator Thune plans to speak this morning at 10:45 a.m. eastern from the floor of the Senate regarding his automated vehicles amendment. It should be available on C-SPAN 2. 


He plans to mention the NFB and will likely withdraw his amendment due to lack of support. We should keep advocating. Also, it is better for him to withdraw the amendment than for it to be defeated. 


Please note that the floor schedule is unpredictable and that he could speak several minutes before or after 10:45.
