Look for What You Don't See

Roll Call has an article out this morning about the agenda Majority Leader Harry Reid will pursue for the rest of this year's dwindling legislative session.

There's a bunch of stuff on it:  The Highway Bill, VA reform, student loans, energy efficiency, and the Export-Import Bank, among many others.

One omission caught my eye  --  the Smarter Sentencing Act.  This does not necessarily mean that it won't be brought up.  But if you're an SSA backer, you would not be happy having read Roll Call's assessment of what lies ahead  this year.

As for next year:  I don't know of anyone who expects the Party principally backing the SSA to get stronger; indeed the only question is how much weaker it's going to be after the November election.
