The Senate must often vote to end debate before voting on a bill, called a cloture vote. The vote on cloture failed. This is often considered a filibuster. The Senate may try again.

This is a Senate bill in the United States Congress (indicated by the “S.” in “S. 2205”). A bill must be passed by both the House and Senate in identical form and then be signed by the President to become law.
