Asbestos Bill Dead?

Supporters fell one vote short of the required 60 votes to waive a budget rule barring legislation that increases government spending by $5 billion in any of four decades after 2016. Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist said before the roll call he would shelve the legislation for the remainder of the year if the procedural motion failed to get 60 votes.
