Amendment - Cloture Not Invoked (Senate) (55-44) - (Key vote)

Title: Reauthorizing the Export-Import Bank of the United States

Vote Smart's Synopsis:

Vote on a motion to invoke cloture on an amendment to HR 3606 that extends the expiration date of the U.S. Export-Import Bank until 2015 and increases its lending capacity from $100 billion to $140 billion by 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.

Amendment - Introduced (Senate) -
