Failed Cloture on Mar 26, 2019

This resolution is provisionally dead due to a failed vote for cloture on March 26, 2019. 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.
