Senate  Consideration of Presidential Nominees Committee and Floor Procedures

On April 6, 2017, the Senate reinterpreted Rule XXII in order to allow cloture to be invoked on nominations by a majority of Senators voting, including Supreme Court justice nominations.

FWIW, I dug up Rule XXII and XXI three (3) weeks ago, when the Anti-RBG nomination hit the twitterverse upside the head, to assure myself of which procedures Senate dems might avail themselves to delay vote in committee and floor confirmation. KEYWORD: quorum call. I had hoped--against all my low expectations--they'd pull a TX 11 with all sincerity in opposition and flee D.C. until 31 Dec, since passage of any stimulus bill is moot.

But all I got was a 8 hr "boycott" in committee.
