The Senate Voted on 12 More Keystone Amendments. Did Any of Them Pass?

Today, the Senate voted on 12 more amendments to the S. 1, the Keystone XL bill. This vote-a-thon followed their 15 vote marathon from last Thursday. The Senate will vote on 13 more amendments tomorrow.

How many of the 12 passed? One. It was an amendment from Susan Collins (R-ME) and Mark Warner (D-VA) to help school officials learn more easily about federal programs and incentives that are available to improve energy efficiency. It passed by voice vote.

I have chronicled the 11 roll call votes below.

Twelve Democrats broke party line on at least one vote: Manchin (7), Heitkamp (6), Bennet (3), Donnelly (3), McCaskill (3), Tester (3), Warner (3), Carper (2), Henrich (1), Kaine (1), Klobuchar (1), and Udall (1).

Six Republicans broke party line on at least one vote: Collins (4), Ayotte (3), Alexander (2), Gardner (2), Grassley (2), and Kirk (2).
