Another topic for commentary:
Does anyone find it curious that the Gov rammed through the new legislation and at the very same time the DESPP is saying "we're receiving an overwhelming number of applications"? Common sense would dictate that if there are large numbers of people acting to take advantage of the OLD law, there might actually be a lot of folks who don't want the law to change...at the very least it's a draw and E-cert was FAR from necessary (particularly in light of the delay until the provisions become fully effective).
I am hopeful that the pending suit will be successful. A stay sounds like a reasonable provisional remedy (no clue if that has been ruled on).
