    of the current act shouldn't be allowed for more than 3 months, IMO.

    Perhaps the senate version could be allowed for a year, as that is a bit more palatable than the current law or the "conference report". But remember that the election time will be a rather busy one, and the forces of poltics will intrude an honest debate on the matter if it is allowed to overlap with the election.

    All in all, I think that asking for a 3 month extension of the existing law and forcing open floor debates seems to be best option to me.
