    I thought it would have required 27 votes in the Senate for a veto proof passage and 54 in the Assembly. Doesn’t it require a veto proof vote in both?

    Is anyone else finding it impossible to keep the live feed going without significant pauses to allow the data to load? Can this be viewed elsewhere?

    I’m having the same problem, Matt. I have to keep reloading it to get the stream started again. I’d be very happy to just listen to the sound, if that’s available anywhere.

    Matt, Dastius, its not us but the media player. Very poor, too many interruptions and freezing all the time. I was so frustrated I gave up listening. Did any of you happen to hear that awful woman in the green jacket and shoulder length died blonde hair speak? The speaker had to caution her about staying on subject a couple of times. She didn’t like it but was going to vote “no” anyway. The rationales they use are truly astonishing.
