Legislation - Cloture Not Invoked (Senate) (56-42) - (Key vote)

Title: Equal Pay Bill

Vote Smart's Synopsis:

Vote to invoke cloture on a bill that would designate that unequal payment based on race, religion, sex, national origin, age or disability is a new violation with each payment.

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.
