    I see that the House failed to concur with the Senate ammendment so I assume that it is dead. It appears that the warring factions have won and as I predicted, would be ammended out of existence and possible passage. I did not see the debate on it so have no details on what happened but if someone does have more information I would appreciate hearing it.

    I thought in SC if there was non-concurrence, it would then go to a conference committee?


    EDITED TO ADD -

    ok actualy looks like a message is sent to the Senate, then the Senate can either Insist on their amendment or recede. If they recede, it is ratified as originally written.

    If the Senate insists on the amendment, then it goes to conference committee. from there, there are far more possibilities than I would have expected..

    So is this thing dead or alive or will it take another 2 years to start all over?

    It appears that with the reluctance on either side to compromise I am afraid it is dead at least for this term. I hope I am wrong but any hope I had has been greatly diminished.

    Compromise, being 'failure on the installment plan,' we should now be able to discern each side's idea of 'success.'
