RIP, SB785?

I sure hope so.

Sen. Florence Shapiro's abortion reporting bill has hit a major snag in the House -- a point of order that has forced House sponsor Geanie Morrison to delay the bill three separate times. Latest ETA is 5 p.m. -- but considering how many times it's been pushed back, and the number of riled up folks who head to the podium each time the bill is SUPPOSED to come up, I'd say the chances of passage without a major brawl are slim. Heck, at this rate, the bills proponents would be lucky to get a chance at a brawl.

Shapiro's bill won't be the only one to die today, but it will be one of the more deserving of that fate. I know, I know, don't count your chickens and all that, but I'm feeling hopeful.
