Cloture invoked on Blunt-Murray amendment (Zika funding)

By a vote of 68-29, cloture was invoked on Blunt-Murray SA #3900, as modified ($1.1billion Zika funding). There will now be up to 30 hours of post-cloture debate. There is a chance time is yielded back and we vote on the Blunt-Murray amendment today. Senators will be notified when the next vote is expected.

Senator Collins offered Blunt amendment #3946 (report) to Blunt-Murray amendment #3900.
