What is "a bipartisan Senate?" please!

 

The legislation cleared its final procedural hurdle Thursday evening on a bipartisan Senate vote, 63 to 30. Final Senate passage is scheduled for May 6, and that tally is likely to be even more strongly in favor. Earlier test votes won as many as 75 yeses. And House action, once seemingly unthinkable, may be unstoppable.

    Sometimes a Senate vote is split along partisan lines, that is one party votes yes while the other party votes no. In this case enough senators from both parties voted yes to pass the law, making it a bipartisan vote in favor of the legislation.
