Answering a FAQ on Zika Vote

Author: David Kotok, Post Date: September 7, 2016

We thank many readers for their emails and messages about yesterday’s Zika comments and today’s report of the Senate vote. One frequent question about the technical structure of the vote may warrant some additional notes.

The Senate vote was on the “Motion to Invoke Cloture on the Conference Report to Accompany H.R. 2577” (the Military Construction, Veterans Affairs, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2017). The bill includes three divisions:

• the Military Construction and Veterans Affairs and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2017;
• the Zika Response Appropriations Act, 2016; and
• the Zika Vector Control Act
