Stage Details

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

Title: Habeas Corpus for Detainees of the United States

Vote Smart's Synopsis:

Vote to invoke cloture on an amendment that would reapply the habeas corpus requirement to persons being detained by the United States.

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) -
