Nomination - Cloture Not Invoked (Senate) (57-43) - (Key vote)

Title: Henry W. Foster Jr., Medical Director in the Regular Corps of the Public Health Service

Vote Smart's Synopsis:

Vote on a motion to invoke cloture on President William J. Clinton's nomination of Henry Foster, Jr. to be the new Surgeon General.

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.
