  •  mmmm.... vote this session (0+ / 0-)

    the 60 day waiting period doesn't come after the vote. The vote is done in the House and will be done with the passage of the Military Defense Authorization budget, which is hoped, presume and expected to happen next week.

    So it will be out of Congress' hand by next session.

    Byrd's amendment adding 60 days, I've been assured by several lawyers who read it, contains no provision for Congress revisiting their decision.

    It's a little unclear what Byrd was trying to contribute to the process, except to be able to say he did "something." (Slowed the process down by 60 days? Yay!)
