The Senate will be voting on a climate bill on Tuesday that the Democrats hope will pass.
They’re trying to use a procedural maneuver called a cloture motion to stop it from going to a final vote.
Here’s how it works.
A cloture vote is a vote to end debate on a bill by forcing a simple majority vote in the Senate.
That means the minority party can’t bring up the legislation again.
If the bill is voted down, the Senate can pass another version that has a better chance of passing.
The Senate can then proceed to a vote on a third version.
That’s how this happened with the Clean Air Act, which was passed in 1970 with 51 votes to 45.
The climate bill is a much better bill, but the Democrats have been unable to win the 60 votes needed to overcome a filibuster.
The latest version has a lot of support from the left, but is being pushed by a Republican leadership that is hostile to environmental protection.
The Senate is now expected to vote on the bill on the eve of the weekend.
The Democrats have said they want the Senate to pass it before the end of the year, which would allow them to send it to the White House.
That’s unlikely to happen.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said in a statement that she supports the measure, but said that she hopes the Senate will vote on it by the end the week.
She said Democrats hope the Senate could vote on this bill and pass it in its current form, which is the one that passed the House last year.
She also said she expects the bill to pass the Senate as well.
“We’ve got to vote this bill through,” she said.
“This is a critical time for the country.”
If the House does pass the bill, the president can sign it into law without Senate approval.
He can also sign the bill into law as a presidential executive order, which makes it harder for Congress to reverse it.
If Democrats fail to muster enough votes to override a filibuster, they would be forced to bring the bill up again.
In the past, Republicans have used the procedural maneuver known as a “cloture vote” to force Democrats to take up a bill that was not in their control.
Republicans have been trying to get a climate-change bill passed as soon as possible.
They’ve tried to include language that would exempt some energy-related activities, like oil drilling, from climate regulations.
Democrats say this is not acceptable.
