The procedural vote was 60-37 on Jan 7. So it looks like there's quite a bit more positive interest now.

I want to apologize to DamageInc & NJGUY524, if I came off in a bad way. I hope this bill pass ASAP. I know so many people credit have been damage because of the lack of concern by the congress.

the vote of 98-0 was a vote to continue discussion of proceeding with the EUC vote. Think of it as a precautionary vote to ensure a likelihood of it passing the real vote.
