Yay!!! According to Boston.com, the legislature voted 132-61 to defeat the measure. However, since only 50 are needed to approve, the measure has passed onto the next session for approval.
From the Bay Windows site it appears a vote to reconsider was stopped and now they are voting to recess (to work backroom deals?)?
yes, the link posted below was saying that the vote was to recess for an hour. I tried to hear what was being said on
the streamcast and did hear the bit about "shall we recess
for an hour?" and the rollcall, but it was so plagued
with audio drops and video freezes that I gave up.
