Anticipation of Senate vote

Writing in The New Republic blog, Michael Crowley says asbestos is not mind-numbingly boring. Its good to know some political reporters appreciate this issue, although as Crowley points out, the media has largely ignored it, probably because it is so complicated.

Sen. Harry Reid was quoted as saying he “can’t stand this legislation”. The bill has been co-sponsored by Arlen Spector (Republican) and Patrick Leahy (Democrat). It will be interesting to see what happens and the political reporters are saying it is too close to call at this point.
