US Senators Aim for SAFE Banking Vote This Month 

Senators have said they want to have a vote on the long-awaiting SAFE Banking bill later this month, following the July 4 recess.

The Senate Banking Committee Chairman Sherrod Brown recently told Punchbowl News that he would ‘like to’ hold a committee vote on the bill this month, but that ‘it depends’ on whether unrelated legislation his panel has passed makes it through the senate floor.

Elsewhere, the Democrat sponsor of the bill said lawmakers were ‘going to do a deep plunge now and try to set the stage, hopefully, for a markup when we return from break.’

Although momentum seems to be behind another vote on the bill, some parts of it including Section 10 are still under debate by its proponents, according to Marijuana Moment.

Senator Steve Daines said that he believes the bill, which has already seen a number of votes, has its ‘best chance’ of being passed this Congress, even with Republicans in control of the House.

Although a solid voting date is yet to be scheduled, lawmakers from across party lines are understood to be confident that the votes are now finally there for the bill to be passed, so long as its scope is not significantly expanded.
