DISCLOSE Act Fails on Cloture Vote, 59-39
See here. According to Fred Wertheimer, "Senate sponsors of the DISCLOSE Act made clear to Senators Snowe and Collins that they were prepared to change the bill to strip it down to the disclosure provisions, to make 2011 the effective date for the disclosure reforms and to discuss any other changes the Senators wanted to make. Yet, Senators Snowe and Collins were not even willing to discuss with the sponsors of the legislation changes in the bill to address any problems they may have."
