17. I was thinking that's what has happened and the players....

are playing along with it.

From CNA...

Dear Steering Committee, A disappointing result today...SB 810 was not brought up for a vote today for various reasons which we should discuss on Friday at the Steering Committee meeting - but in the end the votes hadn't changed and we didn't get to the required 21 votes we need to move the bill to the Assembly. So at this point SB 810 has died in the senate and we will have to wait until 2013 to introduce a new bill. It's important that we thank Leno as the sponsor who really pushed this bill forward in a difficult political climate. And also we need to thank Steinberg and Kehoe for their leadership and the important roles they played in moving the bill out of Appropriations which allowed for a floor vote and for Senators to be counted. The final vote last Thursday ended up being 19 yes, 15 no (including Calderon and Correa as the only Dems), with Padilla, Vargas, Wright and Rubio abstaining (all of whom were flooded with calls). I think we all should be very proud of the work we did to move this bill forward further than any expected this year. It's an important testament to the power we can bring when we are organized and fight together...and we're only growing stronger. I look forward to determining our next steps and finalizing a plan to realize this growth on Friday. Please join us in the CNA office in Oakland or Glendale, or on the phone if you can't get to either place. This is a very important meeting to debrief our work and plan for the coming year's important work still to be done. Call-in number for Friday Steering Committee meeting if you canít be in a CNA office (10am to 2pm)Phone Number: 800-573-2133Access Code: 4332724 Thank you again for your great work to fight at every turn. I look forward to continuing to fight with you.

In unity,Pilar Schiavo
