Jonathan Medalia at the Congressional Research Service just put out a report on the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty.  Here is one key point he makes about Congress’ upcoming floor debate/bargain:

“Arriving at a package of Safeguards and any measures to implement them would entail bargaining, which is a different legislative process than debating in that debate often does not change votes whereas bargaining often does. At issue for the Senate is whether or not a resulting bargain could change the Senate’s net assessment of the treaty enough for that body to give its advice and consent to ratification.”
