According to The Hill:
“The Senate on Tuesday rejected Sen. Rand Paul’s (R-Ky.) controversial proposal to audit the Federal Reserve, turning aside a bill that has drawn the ire of the business community and the White House.
The Senate voted 53-44 on taking up the presidential hopeful’s Audit the Fed measure. Sixty votes were needed to move forward.
Paul won some bipartisan support for the legislation, with Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), another presidential candidate, voting in favor. Democratic Sen. Tammy Baldwin (Wis.) backed the bill as well.
Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), who is also running for president, supported moving forward with Paul’s legislation, while White House rival Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) missed the vote. Sen. Bob Corker (Tenn.) was the only Republican to vote against the bill.”
