Senate Votes 97-1, on Final Round of Cloture (November 4, 2009)
Alright, I got some good news:
Shortly before 1 pm today, the Senate voted on its final round of cloture on the unemployment extension bill. The vote was 97 – 1. Jim DeMint (R-SC) was the only dissenting vote. At the very latest, the Senate will pass this bill tomorrow morning, at which time it will be sent back to the House for passage and then to the President for signature. We anticipate this will all be done before close of business on Friday at the latest.
