Jim,

I think we are in a different reality where amendments are concerned. Taking from experience working for non-profit advocacy in my state legislature, things like passing the DQ exemption are often traded with reluctant legislators as chits for major votes. This happened in a much friendlier state-level environment than what the current state of things in Washington DC.

I would not count the DQSC out. Just because we aren't hearing anything doesn't mean it isn't happening. If they were trying to tack an exemption in a larger bill they might not want to call attention in a big way until time to pop the cork and celebrate.

Wesley
