From Fox News:
Senate Republicans on Wednesday mounted a filibuster against a motion to debate a nearly $1 trillion infrastructure bill that President Biden brokered with a bipartisan group of senators, dealing a big setback for efforts to fund new roads, bridges and broadband improvements.
The procedural vote in the Senate needed 60 votes to succeed but fell short at 49, with Republicans complaining Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., rushed to a vote on a bill that wasn’t quite ready.
Sen. Minority Leader Mitch McConnell called the test vote a “stunt” earlier Wednesday and correctly predicted it would “fail.”
“Around here, we typically write the bills before we vote on them,” McConnell, R-Ky., said. “That’s the custom.”
But McConnell left the door open for another vote once the bill text is ready. “A failed cloture vote does not mean no forever,” he said.
All 50 Republicans voted to block debate on the bipartisan bill, and the full 50-member Democratic caucus voted in favor of proceeding. But Schumer changed his vote at the last minute to side with the GOP giving him the option to bring the measure up for another vote at a later date.
Schumer had rejected pleas from Republicans such as Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine., to postpone the vote until next week to give bipartisan negotiators more time to shore up the final details of the package.
