Congress Daily (PM) (subscription required) is reporting the following this afternoon
Although no formal decision has been made on what will follow the supplemental (that would be Bush's FY 2005 Supplemental Spending Request) on the Senate floor, aides said Thursday they expect Frist to bring the gun bill back to the chamber. Despite strong opposition from much of the Democratic Caucus and some moderate Republicans, Frist appears to be within striking distance of moving the gun bill. Nevertheless, Democrats can be expected to make a major push to include in it a renewal of the lapsed assault weapons ban -- a provision that helped kill the gun bill in the last session.
This will be a very interesting fight. I expect to see it arising before the end of April. . . . . .maybe even just in time for BAG Day!!
