Senate to defeat limousine bill?

Hmmm. Today's Senate session is shaping up as an interesting one.

The first item being debated now, is the change recently passed in the House on a party line vote implementing a limousine service to compete with taxis. I've been listening in this morning.

So far, it's clear the 3 UBP Senators will vote no, and at least two independents appear to be indicating likewise.

I'll post the outcome of the vote when it happens.

Following on that could be the Parliamentary salary hike. It's not clear if the Senate will debate it today, but two Senate defeats in one day would be unusual, and affirm the Senate's usefulness is serving as a check on the impulses of the governing party.
