Akaka Bill Won’t Be Enacted in Lame-Duck Session

Ilya Shapiro of the Cato Institute (no relation, though sometimes confused with me) reports that the Akaka Bill is not going to be pushed through Congress during the present lame-duck session. I criticized an earlier version of the bill on federalism grounds here. As my fellow Ilya points out, this probably won’t be the last time we see the Akaka Bill, since it seems to come up again in every Congress. But it is less likely to get through the the new, more Republican, Congress.
