Senate After Dark (Updated)
July 15th, 2009

It is a little after 12:30 a.m. and the Senate is back in session and voting on the non-controversial calendar.

It is interesting to note that Sen. Pedro Espada’s name has made it into the amended roll call that takes place during votes on non-controversial legislation. If the Democratic leadership structure continues to grow the way it has lately the amended list might have to be amended for time’s sake.

The Senate seems to be moving rather speedily through legislation. As for controversial issues…don’t hold your breath.

The chamber stood at ease at 12:45 a.m. and Sen. Malcolm Smith called for a rules committee meeting at 1:15 a.m.

The 1:15 a.m. rules committee meeting has apparently been scheduled to address a deal on rules reform. The Times Union has the release from the Republican press office that details the proposed reforms.
