Vote Smart's Synopsis:

Vote on a motion to invoke cloture on a confirmation of President Donald Trump's nomination of Scott Price to be Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency.

Highlights:
  • The presiding officer invoked the constitutional or "nuclear" option, allowing the cloture motion to pass with a simple majority.
Note:

NOTE: INVOKING CLOTURE REQUIRES A 3/5 MAJORITY OF THE SENATE. IT IS NOT A VOTE ON THE PASSAGE OF THE PIECE OF LEGISLATION, BUT LIMITS FURTHER DEBATE TO 30 HOURS. CLOTURE IS TYPICALLY USED TO END A FILIBUSTER. A FAILED CLOTURE VOTE OFTEN PREVENTS THE LEGISLATION FROM EVER COMING TO A VOTE.
