The manager’s amendment aka the Reid Amendment that denoted the final Senate version has been released. The Repuglicans insisted that it be read in it’s entirety to further delay the process. The Senate Clerk began doing so at 7:35 AM EST (4:35 AM PST) and is expected to finish around 3:00 PM EST (Noon PST), about two hours from now.
I looked at it, but integrating it back into the original would take me days by myself. So I’ll have to wait for analysis for those with large staffs and specialized tools before I can render a final opinion on it.
Barack Obama is scheduled top speak on the Senate Bill at 1:30 PM EST (10:30 AM PST) about 30 minutes from now.
I expect to have a more detailed report tomorrow.
