John McCainJohn McCainOvernight Finance: Puerto Rico bill clears panel | IRS chief vows to finish term | Bill would require nominees to release tax returns Overnight Defense: Pentagon chief fears sequestration's return Groups urge Senate to oppose defense language on for-profit colleges MORE (R-Ariz.), are hopeful that some of these senators will relent and support the treaty, which commits countries to expanding access and mobility for disabled people.

The other is H.R. 5817, which would allow banks and credit unions to only report their data privacy policies to customers when those policies change, rather than every year. That bill was debated Monday, and the only reason it will be subject to a roll-call vote on Tuesday is because of a request by Rep. Brad Sherman (D-Calif.), who said he thinks House members "ought to spend more time with each other."
