Case: Sixty of the 100 senators present voted to cut off the debate on an environmental issue. A petition with sixteen votes had been circulated in the Senate. Senator Brown then spoke for only an hour on this issue the first day after the petition was signed.
Issue: Has cloture been demonstrated?
Rule: The Senate cuts off debate if three-fifths of the senators present vote to do so two days after sixteen senators sign a petition for it; each member may then speak for only one hour.
Analysis: The sixty represent three-fifths of the hundred senators. Senator Brown spoke on the first day after the petition was signed, making it the second day after sixteen senators signed it. Senator Brown spoke for only one hour.
