Well, it appears that the House Judiciary Committee
has opted not to live webcast the markup. has, after all, decided to webcast the markup. We'll live-blog it for the next hour or so, since we're in between assignments, and wanted to get a listen to who's saying what. Since we're not set up for liveblogging with an auto-refresh feature, you'll want to hit the 'reload' button every three to four minutes to see what we've added.
We're arriving there shortly.....
