Bankruptcy bill: House vote is imminent, apparently
When last we left this legislative cesspool (guaranteed smelling of roses by umpteen Dem senators - earlier coverage), S 256 had passed the Senate, and was lodged with the House Judicial and Financial Services Committees.
Now, apparently, a House vote on passage may be coming up in the next couple of weeks. If, as I'd assume, S256 will reported out by both committees unamended (DeLay and Co should be biting the Senate's hand off!), it will head straight off to the White House thereafter.
(Once the Senate's Democratic Shylocks had sharpened their scalpels , the only hope of stymieing the bill would have been for the House to balk at something in the Senate bill. There's no sign of that.)
Some Dems are trying for a show of unity in the House vote (against the bill, that is).
