Default Senate Immig Amdmnt to Min Wage Bill NOT passed

I apologize for this mistake to everyone .....I changed the header to reflect my error.

-------------------------------------------------------------



I may be completely wrong but this is what I see on thomas.loc.gov


Appended to the Minimum wage bill was SA187 which amends SA112 sponsored by John Kerry and consponsored by Sununu, Snowe, Landrieu and Lieberman.

Senate Amendment SA 187 seems to have passed with unanimous consent. This is what it apparently contains among a lot of other stuff... Please correct me if I am wrong.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

SEC. 1601. ELIMINATION OF EXISTING BACKLOGS.

On thomas the link always goes to a temporary search listing which cannot be replicated. So here is how you get to it.

go to

http://www.senate.gov/legislative/LI...menu_110_1.htm

click on H.R. 2 which is on 2nd row.

then click on "Amendments" and find SA187

Now this page show that it was agreed to. Also the link to the page is shown.
