Sibling category - CIR

How does the comprehensive immigration reform bill in Senate propose to reduce sibling immigration category?

My priority date is Nov 2011 according to the acceptance notice of submitted I130 which is still waiting to be processed. How long should I expect to wait according to senate bill?
