By nearly a 2 to 1 margin S-2739 passed on 4/29/08 @ 7:18 US time. Miller and Pelosi score knockout!
The QUESTION was : On Motion to Suspend the Rules and Pass (I wonder if Rep Sablan objects to them suspending the rules in order to get to the vote?).
BILL TITLE: Consolidated Natural Resources Act of 2008. We are considered a natural resource of the US, to be used, mined and the slag cast off.
With one more signature, self rule ends in the CNMI.
Soon we can bend over and try to work out the best deal we can as a subjugated colony.
Or is there still hope?
