Majority Leader Harry Reid will offer his Manager’s Amendment to the health reform bill tomorrow after the 1 a.m. vote on the Department of Defense bill, which will include the compromise to the public plan option.

The Manager’s Amendment marks the beginning of the cloture process to bring the bill to a vote for ‘closing the debate’ and then passage.
