Minutes ago, the U.S. Senate voted 85 to 14 to pass the motion for cloture on the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). That means that the debate on actual bill is limited to 1 hour for each Senator and 30 hours total. Therefore, with 14 Senators voting ‘No’, the maximum debate would be 14 hours. It will likely not be 14 hours. A vote to pass the bill is expected tomorrow.
