Protect Womenís Health from Corporate Interference Act
On Cloture on the Motion to Proceed
Senate Roll Call No. 228
113rd Congress, 2nd Session

Rejected: 56-43 (see complete tally)

On July 16, a majority of the Senate (56-43) voted in support of the Protect Women’s Health from Corporate Interference Act (S. 2578), also known as the “Not My Bosses’ Business Act.” This amount fell short of the 60 votes needed to invoke cloture and allow the bill to proceed to consideration on its merits. The ACLU supported this legislation and a vote in favor of cloture. The Not My Bosses’ Business Act would have barred employers from using their religious beliefs to deny their employees and their dependents coverage for contraception or any other health service guaranteed by federal law. (Though Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada is listed as voting "no," he did so solely for procedural reasons to enable the legislation to be voted on again in this Congress. He has stated that he supports passage of this legislation.)
