Thirty Day Extension to PAA also fails.

48-45, ironically by the same margin that Rockefeller-Bond failed by, with 60 required to cut off debate and pass the 30 day extension.

(Rumor: Mitch McConnell's office is only open to an extension in the context of including retro-immunity.)

This means the PAA expires on the second of February unless there is a massive last minute bi-cameral deal, because remember the exact same language needs to pass both houses, and Bush, who has vowed to veto a short PAA extension, has to sign it.

So far, as far as the eye can see, there is no agreement any place on retromunity.
