(CNN) — Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is holding off on taking steps toward a first vote on whether to authorize a military strike against Syria over alleged chemical weapons use.

The decision follows Russia’s proposal that Syria relinquish its chemical weapons stockpiles to international control. An aide said that the Russia proposal is serious and fluid enough that members do not want to lock themselves into a position on Syria just yet.

An initial Senate vote on the issue had been expected on Wednesday.
