Then it will reconvene to consider the other matters, including the two anti-same-sex marriage amendments.
6 p.m. Update: The Boston Globe has filed an item on this. As cited in pre-ConCon coverage, the pro-SSM side likes the delay. The 50-vote minimum margin is very close and they hope to narrow it. No one knows yet whether not having the public view of an election pending would encourage more lawmakers to vote for equality over the anti forces.
The Globe quoted the head of the amendment VoteonMarriage drive, Kris Mineau, as saying, "This move shows the flagrant disregard for the will of the people by Senate President Travaglini and every legislator who voted to recess the convention until November."
