70. Man -it is hard to get this accross it seems - The real HR811 in Senate is S559 - the Nelson bill
Edited on Sun Jun-10-07 11:00 PM by papau
was introduced as Hillary/Nelson as the intinal co-sponsor was Hillary.

Hillary has her own bill that she is the sponsor of.

Dodd has his own bill that he is the sponsor of.

Feinstein has her own bill that she is the sponsor of.

Hillary is one of many co-sponsors, with Obama, on the Feinstein Bill - I do not know about the other bills as to co-sponsor but that is an easy look up if you are curious.

The Feinstein bill is the weakest of the lot but if the amended HR811 gets passed by the House and any of the above bills gets passed by the Senate, I believe we can get HR811 out of conference and into law.

The Nelson bill is the strongest and most like HR811 and is the Bill tied to HR811 in the system. Hillary was the first beside Nelson to get behind the Nelson bill.

Hillary is not the sponsor of any bill that is the "Bev Harris" bill. If you believe there is a "Bev Harris" bill in the Senate - or the House - please state what the number is.
