Motion to Invoke Cloture on the Motion to Concur in the House Amendment to the Senate Amendment to H.R. 2146

Jun 23, 2015 at 11:04 a.m. ET.

This was a crucial procedural Senate vote on Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) for the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade deal currently being negotiated. H.R. 2146 was originally introduced as a bill to address issues with retirement funds of federal law enforcement officers and firefighters. The House had added TPA to the end of H.R. 2146 and passed both components together.

This vote was a vote on cloture, meaning to preclude a filibuster. This successful vote paves the way for a final up-or-down vote on the bill, which is expected to have the same outcome as this vote.

The Senate previously voted on TPA when it was combined with Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) in a different bill, but TAA was voted down in the House.

This vote was related to a bill introduced by Rep. David Reichert [R-WA8, 2005-2018] on April 30, 2015, H.R. 2146: [Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) for the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and] Defending Public Safety Employees’ Retirement Act.
