Got this email from the CSSA: "Senate Appropriations committee today "killed" HB 1410 on a 5-5 vote. Democrat Peggy Reeves, rumored to be the swing vote, swung the wrong way. There is a possibility (pigs could fly!) that the bill can be reconsidered, but it is highly unlikely. However, stranger things have happened in the last few hours of a legislative session. We will be watching closely to see what shakes out, but the session ends tomorrow night at midnight."

WTF, they vote more than once on a bill???? Is the idea to vote until you get the desired result?

HB 1242 died in Judiciary almost two weeks ago. Although I didn't support 1410 for reasons I've already stated, I do agree with you that Matsunaka was simply after brownie points with his support of this bill. He is welcome to the publicity for his co-sponsorship of 1410. If he really believes that this will help him with his congressional campaign in the strongly conservative 4th congressional district, well then, he's nearly as stupid as he looks. I'm fairly certain that Musgrave will be occupying that seat in D.C. after the election.

Why, Why, Why? [>(][>(] While I didn't think that this was the best bill I did believe it was a big step towards a reasonable shall issue. ie we would get a 1242 in 3-5 years. Oh it almost makes me want to cry.
