Cloture in Senate on finance reform Scott Brown joins Dems to cut off debate, clear way for final approval. Senate votes to end debate on bank reform bill - MarketWatch WASHINGTON (MarketWatch) -- The Senate voted Thursday to narrowly close off debate on a sweeping bank reform bill, setting the stage for enactment of legislation that will change the rules of capitalism by the end of the week or early next week. The chamber approved the motion, by a vote of 60 to 40, after lawmakers narrowly failed to find sufficient support to close of debate on Wednesday afternoon... I'm liking Scott Brown more and more. Rumor has it, he drives a truck.
