The Senate passed a bipartisan pharmaceutical bill by voice vote on Monday, sending the bill to President Obama for his signature.

The measure, which aims to make it harder for large compounding facilities to mix potentially lethal doses of drugs and to better track such compounds, passed unanimously out of the Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions Committee earlier this year. The measure also had broad support in the House.

In the Senate, the bill gained 97 votes during a procedural roll call and survived the attempts to delay consideration by Sen. David Vitter, R-La., who sought a vote on his Obamacare amendment.
