Sponsors of the legislation said they expect to have more than enough votes to pass the measure when the Senate returns from its week-long recess, set to begin on Friday. If and when the Democratic-led Senate passes the bill, it would go to the Republican-led House of Representatives for final approval. He and Republican Senator Dean Heller of Nevada are chief sponsors of the legislation.
