The Senate will vote Tuesday afternoon on a bipartisan resolution praising U.S. troops and the intelligence community on the raid that killed Osama bin Laden, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s (D-Nev.) office announced.

Reid will give a floor speech at 3:30 p.m. ahead of the vote. The text of the resolution was not immediately available; a release from Reid’s office said that it will be “a resolution commending the intelligence community for gathering the information that led to the raid that killed Osama bin Laden, and thanking the troops who bravely risked their lives to bring the terrorist to justice.”

House leaders have not yet announced whether the lower chamber plans to vote on a resolution on the bin Laden mission.
