Amendment votes for FISA Amendments Act

Vote totals for the three amendments under consideration for FISA Amendments Act of 2008 HR 6403 are now posted at the firedoglake blog, if you can get through. All three amendments failed.

The blog, which was praised by Chris Dodd in his email campiagn agains the bill, appear to be doing a parital liveblog, as the debates are being broadcast on CPAN. Russ Feingold and Chirs Dodd have already spoken.

Vote totals:

Dodd-Feingold-Leahy Amendment: YAYS 32 NAYS 66

Specter Amendment: YAYS 37 NAYS 61

Bingamon Amendment: YAYS 42 NAYS 56

  • Talk Left reports that Obama and Clinton both voted for the Dodd amendment and the Bangaman amendment.
  • The debate is supposed to be available on CSPAN |here|, but I haven’t been able to get through.

UPDATE: 2:53 ET:

Debate is scheduled to continue at 2:15 ET after a recess for lunch.

A commenter at DailyKos, which doesn’t seem terribly avid in it’s coverage of this bill, has posted the following roll call vote for the amendments:
