Legislation - Cloture Not Invoked (Senate) (56-43) - (Key vote)

Title: Protect Women's Health From Corporate Interference Act of 2014

Vote Smart's Synopsis:

Vote on a motion to invoke cloture on a motion to proceed to debate on a bill that prohibits any employer that maintains a group health plan for its employees from denying coverage of any health care item or service required under federal law.

Note:

NOTE: THIS IS A VOTE TO INVOKE CLOTURE ON A MOTION TO PROCEED, WHICH SENDS THE LEGISLATION TO THE FLOOR OF THE SENATE FOR DEBATE AND AMENDMENT. A MOTION TO PROCEED ALONE REQUIRES A MAJORITY FOR APPROVAL. HOWEVER, THE MOTION CAN BE FILIBUSTERED, AND WHEN THIS OCCURS, A CLOTURE VOTE IS NECESSARY TO VOTE ON THE MOTION TO PROCEED. A THREE-FIFTHS MAJORITY OF THE SENATE IS NECESSARY TO INVOKE CLOTURE.
