Rules of Procedure United States Senate Committee on the Judiciary

http://judiciary.senate.gov/about/committee-rules.cfm

IV. BRINGING A MATTER TO A VOTE

The Chairman shall entertain a non-debatable motion to bring a matter before the Committee to a vote. If there is objection to bring the matter to a vote without further debate, a roll call vote of the Committee shall be taken, and debate shall be terminated if the motion to bring the matter to a vote without further debate passes with ten votes in the affirmative, one of which must be cast by the minority.

So who will be the “Benedict Arnold” of the seven?

Sessions (AL), Hatch (UT), Grassley (IA), Kyl (AZ), Graham (SC), Cornyn (TX), and Coburn (OK).
