The Senate voted to advance $1.1 billion to combat the growing threat from the Zika virus in a bipartisan compromise Tuesday, but hurdles remain before any funding is signed into law.
The Senate overcame a filibuster on the Zika spending by a 68-29 vote, with 23 Republicans joining all Democrats in supporting passage and 29 GOP senators voting against it. Three senators – Republicans Ted Cruz of Texas and Wyoming’s Mike Enzi and Vermont Independent Bernie Sanders – did not vote.
