Research help on immigration request 

As mentioned, I'm working on a paper on Congressional voting for immigration reform, and I'm in the middle of data collection. I thought while I was at it I would code the votes from the Senate debate over the last two weeks. I know where to get the data, but I want opinions from my readers: Which votes on the amendments to S. 2611 do you think were critical or important votes? There were 24 such roll call votes, and coding them all looks wasteful to me. Your suggestions in the comments will be greatly appreciated.
