    Carl R-

    All I've got so far are rumors. One is from a credible source (a House aide) is that it passed the House at 2:12 a.m. today. We have no idea in what shape or form.

    Re the Senate, nothing yet from the Hill. Can't find it on the internet. I have a bad feeling. I think we'd have heard if it passed. Either it was defeated in the Senate or they haven't gotten to it yet. Fingers still crossed.

      Does anyone know what the amendment from Barton stated?

            Yep, there it is. If I don't hear something soon I think I'll hop a flight to DC. The Senate needs to be looking a few of us in the eye while they discuss this if at all possible...

              If it passed the House, I don't think it will make it to the Senate until tomorrow. I called yesterday to Senator Hutchison's office and they weren't expecting to get to some of what the House passed until Sunday. The Gulf of Mexico drilling bill which was more high profile passed Yesterday afternoon and I know they weren't getting it in the Senate until Sunday. So stands to reason that anything that happened late last night would not make it to the Senate till Sunday as well. The House record just look strange because it doesn't definitively showed that it passed. I hope "sent to Senateā€ is good.

                I'm pretty sure "sent to Senate" means it passed in the House. But a lot of what seems logical to me means nothing at all up in their little special world, so who knows.

                You think I should order a plane ticket? Is the public allowed in for their midnight deliberations? I'm shocked they'd be working on Sunday. Although God knows they've had plenty of time off! I read in a magazine (I'll be honest, it was Rolling Stone) that Sen. Brownback hadn't missed one day of church at his home church in Topeka KS.

                    Leo, what does it say? I don't understand.

                    I'm a lil bit flustered.

                      The CRPA passed in a Republican House. When it reached the Senate, it was reported to be held up by a couple of Senators. The Senate broke at 6 am today and the CRPA did not pass.

                      Thanks everyone for your hard work.

                        Shit.

                        They basically take a couple years off, pull an all-nighter, vote on this thing when they're running on bad moods and coffee? With NOT ONE FUCKING PERSON IN A WHEELCHAIR IN THE WHOLE FUCKING ROOM?

                        Shit.

                          Deja vu all over again.

                            Senator Who?

                            Cheese,
                            Is there any way we can find out who they were? Too angry to write anything just yet.

                                According to the Senate website, the only piece of legislation they worked on today was H.R. 6111.
