payday loan showdown

bradley burke dunn are presents. lou jones is a present. mautino and mccaulife vote no. mccarthy votes yes. reitz is a present. 16 yes 3 no and 10 present. David Miller's reform bill moves onto the floor. Lots of big time players on the bill. More to come with this incoherent post. For now, looks to me like the good guys have won a round. Congrats to all the advocates.

Hi Jeff,

I don't know. Federal politics depresses me. I steer clear.
