Yesterday the Senate passed HR 4076, the HHEATT Act. As I predicted the bill passed by unanimous consent without debate.
Passage of this bill will effectively kill any possible consideration of S 2085 and S 2086. Sen. Reid made the decision yesterday to go with HR 4076 so the other two are dead. It would take a major political upheaval in the Senate to overcome the political inertia of legislative stare decisis.
