Taken out of the record for now. But it could always come back. If it doesn’t pass out of the house today, I believe they will need to do some procedural magic to get it passed in both houses by the end of Monday. Possible, but tougher to do.

It would not be possible to move the bill through the Senate by 5/31 if the House doesn't send it to them today.

 

There is some potential light on the horizon in ways I won't go into right now.

Correct, not this bill. I just meant that there are procedural tricks they could play using other existing bills as a vehicle to still get it through…but tough to pull that off with controversial bills that can’t get the votes through the normal process. So it would be a very good sign if it doesn’t get out of the house today.
