16. Dopp endorsed the amended HR811 on 5/17 - she refers to HR811/S559 as the bills we
want to pass.

BlackBo x(not the Bev Harris) version) also endorses the HR811/S559 - I assume everyone assumes that in conference the amendments to HR811 will be adopted in the final bill.

Voter Confidence and Increased Accessibility Act of 2007

In the Senate section of the government bill tracking system called Thomas, 559: A bill to amend the Help America Vote Act of 2002 to require a voter-verified permanent paper trail is on that Thomas system as tied to HR 811, and has S559 has this section:

SPECIAL CERTIFICATION OF BALLOT DURABILITY AND READABILITY REQUIREMENTS FOR STATES NOT CURRENTLY USING PAPER BALLOTS- If any of the voting systems used in a State for the regularly scheduled 2006 general elections for Federal office did not operate by having voters cast votes on paper ballots (such as through the use of an optical scan voting system), the State shall certify to the Election Assistance Commission not later than 90 days after the date of the enactment of this Act that the State will be in compliance with the requirements of section 301(a)(13) of the Help America Vote of 2002, as added by paragraph (1), in accordance with the deadline established under this Act, and shall include in the certification the methods by which the State will meet the requirements.

Indeed S559 has not been changed since being introduced in Feb. The the Count Every Vote Act of 2007 is S804 for the 2007 year and was not introduced until March.

S450 of 2005 the Count Every Vote Act is the Kerry /Clinton effort of that year which is most likely what you are thinking of.

and you are correct that it is Hard to tell the players without a scorecard!

So I just follow Kathy!
