I don’t believe that you can filibuster a budget resolution in the senate.

Cruz seems to think so

Fellow Republicans have spent a few days battering the "defund" movement, insisting that it's a waste of time—no way you get the Senate to agree to it, no way you get the president to sign it. Cruz's first strategic answer to this was insisting that the CR could be filibustered, "if we hold 41 Republicans." They didn't need a majority. "The model I would turn to is the battle over guns," said Cruz, a battle that ended in a Republican victory even though most senators voted for a background checks bill.

I should have added that if you let your cursor hover over a dot, the name for that dot shows up so you don’t need to do separate searches.
