Thank you... the Senators that voted to indefinitely postpone the ethanol mandate. This bill was a terrible idea from the get go, and I'm pleased to see that it was effectively killed by this action. I'm also pleased that it did not go to a vote because from what I've read and heard, Senator Fitzgerald would have voted for the bill. Because the bill was indefinitely postponed and he voted for that action, I will not condemn Fitzgerald. He was in a tough position politically. If it had gone to a vote and had he supported the bill at that time, I might then be a little closer to Chris's pre-postponement position, but Fitzgerald played the political game as well as he could today.
