Sens. Schumer and Hutchison have offered the Bridge amendment. It has a chance to pass, although the battle may be tough.
The amendment is “on the floor” and could be acted on this afternoon.
S.AMDT.2448 Amends: H.R.2638 , S.AMDT.2383 Sponsor: Sen Schumer, Charles E. [NY] (submitted 7/25/2007) (proposed 7/25/2007)
UPDATE: The amendment has been withdrawn but that doesn’t necessarily mean that it is permanently withdrawn. The issue seems to be whether or not the leaders will allow any amendments that touch immigration be offered on this bill.
