Reid, McConnell reach Senate filibuster deal
By a 78-16 vote, the Senate adopted a two-year deal intended to give Republicans a minimum number of amendments during floor debate, but limiting their ability to filibuster efforts to begin debate on legislation. It also will limit dilatory tactics on lower-tiered judicial and executive branch nominees.

And by an 86-9 vote, the Senate made permanent changes to the rules to quickly schedule legislation in situations where there’s consensus on legislation — and limited stalling tactics to prevent Senate talks from convening with the House.
