Amendment - Cloture Not Invoked (Senate) (40-59) - (Key vote)

Title: Repeals the Volumetric Ethanol Excise Tax

Vote Smart's Synopsis:

Vote on a motion to invoke cloture on an amendment to S 782 that repeals the Volumetric Ethanol Excise Tax Credit.

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.
