Failed Cloture on Feb 8, 2018
This bill is provisionally dead due to a failed vote for cloture on February 8, 2018. Cloture is required to move past a Senate filibuster or the threat of a filibuster and takes a 3/5ths vote. In practice, most bills must pass cloture to move forward in the Senate.
Adam Schiff was the sponsor of this bill when it was introduced, but the bill’s text was subsequently replaced with unrelated provisions.
