Legislation - Cloture Invoked (Senate) (74-8) - (Key vote)

Title: PATRIOT Act Extension

Vote Smart's Synopsis:

Vote on a motion to invoke cloture on a bill that extends the expiration date of the USA PATRIOT Act from May 27, 2011, to June 1, 2015.

Note:

NOTE: INVOKING CLOTURE REQUIRES A 3/5 MAJORITY OF THE SENATE. IT IS NOT A VOTE ON THE PASSAGE OF THE PIECE OF LEGISLATION, BUT LIMITS FURTHER DEBATE TO 30 HOURS. CLOTURE IS TYPICALLY USED TO END A FILIBUSTER. A FAILED CLOTURE VOTE OFTEN PREVENTS THE LEGISLATION FROM EVER COMING TO A VOTE.
