1. A method for wireless communications by a user equipment (UE), comprising:
receiving control signaling indicating a priority rule for selecting to monitor a first beam associated with a first broadcast transmission, or a second beam that differs from the first beam and is associated with a unicast transmission, when a scheduling conflict is identified between the first broadcast transmission and the unicast transmission, wherein the priority rule specifies a priority of a broadcast control resource set associated with the first broadcast transmission relative to a second control resource set associated with the unicast transmission; and
monitoring, in accordance with the priority rule, one of the first beam or the second beam based at least in part on identification of the scheduling conflict.
