Today, Senator Harry Reid offered a motion for the Senate to proceed on New START. The motion passed 66-32 but this was, only a preliminary vote and there is still a lot to get done. On the bright side, nine Republicans in the procedural motion voted in favor to proceed.
In addition, final passage of the New START Treaty will require a two-thirds vote of those Senators present and voting. That two-thirds majority was achieved today, although again, on a preliminary vote.
