Transmomentum in Massachusetts!

Well, after some late wrangling joined the House and Senate bills, the House passed the new combined resolution (3810) last night, and the Senate passed it this morning by voice vote (thanks to Shakers DonnaL Wench and gidgetcommando for those updates - my mistake on the attribution, thanks to DonnaL for pointing it out).

As pointed out in yesterday's comment thread, this is an imperfect bill, but it's still a step forward, and I want to commend the representatives in MA for their courage in doing the right thing, and thank those who contacted those representatives in support of this bill.

We may not be running pell-mell into the future, but we're definitely shuffling forwards.
