4. Senate rules - The motion to proceed (to a vote on the bill) needed 3/5 of the Senate's support -

Required For Majority:
3/5

No need to apologize, it's a convoluted and at times confusing procedure. For example, Sen Reid voted Nay, probably as one of the last votes. That enables him to recall the issue.
