Delayed SSM Fireworks

See today's Globe piece on the coming Constitutional Convention tactics. For the July 12th re-scheduled Con Con, Scott Helman talked to everyone he could about the anti-same-sex-marriage amendment vote (or non-vote).

The Dark Side only needs 50 of 200 legislators to advance the amendment to the next round -- a Con Con next year to revote it and get it on the 2008 ballot. Pro-SSM forces are lobbying to prevent that.

The article sketches the procedural options for killing it and not letting it come to a vote.
