Well, then, either Senator Weed has a dossier on every member of the senate, or she plays well with others. From what I've read, it's the latter. She can be convinced.
I tend to agree. I was just saying she CAN block a vote if she wants to, so we've got some work to do. I read they elected 3 more pro-equality Senators, so hopefully that will all push her to allow a vote. From everything I've read the votes are there.

I do like the New Hampshire system which forces a floor vote on every single bill, unless dropped by its sponsor. Of course, that makes it a lot harder to kill bad bills, but neither a committee chair, legislative officer, nor party leader can single-handedly prevent a vote.

That system seems a lot fairer, though they probably end up voting on a lot of nonsense bills.

All we can do is hope the people of Rhode Island put pressure on the Senate leadership to at least allow a vote. The House voting first should help as well.

One of our Teapublicans intends to re-introduce a bill requiring that all legislation cite its authority under the Magna Carta. We tried to explain to him what the Magna Carta is, but he was unpertubed.
