Some good news for a change...
 
The Senate Commerce Committee approved the language in S. 1717 today for consideration by the full Senate. That's a big step in the right direction. Below are links to four articles that have already run in today's media.

Time for an email/phone/letter campaign to make all the other Senators aware of the true story of the Delta Queen and of ACL's $150K smear campaign. The DQ is the underdog, and most politicians like the underdog!
Rally round the stack folks!!

I wanted to add more to the great news on the passage and what we still need.

S. 1717 was approved as part of a package of several agenda items in one voice vote, the motion was made by Senator Nelson from Florida. Anyone living in Florida needs to send him a big thank you.

Four no votes were recorded, Booker from New Jersey, Schatz from Hawaii, Cantwell from Washington and Blumenthal from Connecticut. We need our supporters in those states to contact them and change their minds.

We also need the Kentucky folks to get McConnell to get the bill to the Senate floor for passage. Don't let him kill it just by not scheduling it.
