With the debate on the bill entering its 25th day and the Senate's storied polite decorum eroding, the roll was called for the vote at 7:05 a.m. It was the first time since 1895 the Senate body has conducted a Christmas Eve vote on legislation.

The bill passed 60-39, with no Republican voting for it and no Democrat voting against it.
