The Senate voted on cloture today on the Corker-Hoeven Amendment and it passed. Fifteen Republican senators voted for it and two against it. The final vote is not in yet, and the list is still incomplete at this time.

It’s time to burn the phones, let your senators know you would prefer it if they hadn’t voted for cloture, they most likely will be voting for the final bill as well. There’s still time to convince them, nothing ventured, nothing gained. Call, email or tweet, or better yet, do all three; their contact info is listed below.
