Legislation - Cloture Not Invoked (Senate) (57-42) - (Key vote)

Title: District of Columbia House Voting Rights Act of 2007

Vote Smart's Synopsis:

Vote to invoke cloture on a bill that increases membership by two in the House of Representatives to 437 by adding seats in the District of Columbia and Utah, to become effective in the 111th Congress.

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.
