Default Exemption Bill Now Dead

The Courier Journal reported this morning that the DQ exemption bill is dead at the committee level in the Senate. After the bill was introduced it was sent to the Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee who failed to act on the bill before Congress adjourned until Nov. 17. What does this mean? Is the bill now dead and would have to be reintroduced when Congress reconvenes and the whole process start again? Even if the current exemption expires Nov. 1st can congress reinstate it at anytime if it so chooses? Are we dead in the water or is there still hope?
