On May 11, the Senate Rules Committee held a markup of S. 1, the “Corrupt Politicians Act.” There were 40 amendments voted on during the markup, with 11 passing and 29 failing. The final vote to discharge the bill from the Committee, as amended, failed by a party-line vote of 9-9. Under the rules of the power-sharing agreement reached by Majority Leader Schumer and Minority Leader McConnell at the beginning of this Congress, bills that are not discharged from committee because of a tie vote can still be considered by the full Senate on the floor if a majority of the members of the full Senate vote in favor of discharging the bill from committee.
