January 2010 Update

Despite all our efforts, despite the commitment and promises of our
sponsors, and despite the promises of the Senate Leadership, the amended
Loft Law did not come to the floor for a vote in 2009.

There was a session in early December, but the agenda was set by the
Governor, and the Loft Law was not included. The Senate had plans to
reconvene sometime in November or December to vote on this bill and
other priority bills, but, in the end, they did not reconvene, and no
other legislative issues were taken up.

Senator Squadron, his cosponsors, and the Senate Leadership have all
promised that this bill will be among the very first to be taken up in
2010, and as of the first week of January, we will push, press, and do
all we can to hold the Senators accountable for their promises, and to be
sure there will be a vote on this bill in January.

Many of us are without heat and are perilously close to eviction –
we will do all we can to see this bill passed as soon as possible, and
to obtain the protections it will provide us all.
