Any Other Business: Will the three amigos be able to fill Michael D's shoes?
Joan Burton: going 'Scandinavian'.

The Senate sits tomorrow (Yes! Working on a Monday! Whatever next?) because it has to get the social welfare bill over the line in time for its commencement on Thursday.

The bill is accompanied by what's called an 'early signature motion', which is a request to the President not to dawdle and get his pen out to sign the bill into law.

Small complication: President Michael D will be in the United States.
