This could be a signal of how the GOP will respond. Without a quorum, no votes can be taken.

If committee rules require a member of the minority to be present for there to be a quorum, as do the Judiciary Committee rules, not attending committee meetings halts any action. If for some reason less than 50 Democratic senators are present when the Senate is in session, no GOP attendance will shut the Senate down.
