Senator Reid Files Cloture on Senate Bill

Cloture Vote Filed

Senator Reid filed cloture on the bill, with a vote scheduled for Thursday evening. This means that a vote to end debate on the immigration bill and amendments to it will take place on Thursday. Sixty votes will be needed. Republicans have objected, saying that there are many more amendments to be offered on their side and that they do not want to have debate cut off.
