      ... passed yesterday by a vote of 98-0.  If I understand correctly, there was no separate floor vote on the amendment; rather, the bill came out of the Senate Armed Services Committee with the amendment included.

      The vote on the amendment in the committee, from back in May, was 16-10 ...

      In Favor: Levin, Lieberman, Reed, Akaka, Webb, McCaskill, Udall, Hagan, Begich, Manchin, Shaheen, Gillibrand, Blumenthal, McCain,
      Brown, and Collins.
      Opposed: Nelson, Inhofe, Sessions, Chambliss, Wicker, Portman, Ayotte, Graham, Cornyn, and Vitter.
