Senate votes to end Saudi policy support in Yemen

We've been backing the Saudi war in Yemen so today the Senate voted to end that backing. 14 Repugs joined a unanimous Dem coalition while the remaining Repugs voted to retain "the status quo of American intelligence, logistical and diplomatic assistance for the Saudi campaign." Does this mean the end of support voted to end arms sales to the Saudis? That was not in the article. And it also noted that after amendments the Bill will likely "not compel an end to the U.S. support for the effort by the Saudis and their partner the United Arab Emirates."
