1. Is this just the cloture vote?

Or did they not need that (no filibuster) and go right to the regular vote?

Stunning that Mitch might allow ANYTHING to pass.

2. Passed with a simple majority. Will go to the House

Snip

It faces a tough battle ahead in the House where it is likely to be parceled out into different bills.

3. Cloture was before the 1/6 Commission vote, I think

This was the final vote and it passed 68-32.

4. I'm glad they're naming these things after what everyone is supposedly for.

It's hard to vote against competition when that's your whole spiel.
