More VRA Rumors
CQ has a report (sorry I don't have a link) that repeats the rumors I reported yesterday on VRA renewal timing. But I've also heard conflicting rumors that the measure may come up in the House the week of July 17. The key action on the part of those pushing the existing bills is to get identical bills passed without any amendments an to avoid any kind of conference or compromise. In the wake of the recent events in the House, this seems less likely than before, but we'll have to wait and see.
