The Senate Has Apparently Failed to Get to Health Identifier Legislation.

The Senate rises this afternoon / evening and does not seem to be considering the Bill today and didn’t over the last two days.

Here is today’s program.

The next sitting day is June 15, 2010 so it will be all on hold until then I guess.

See here for sitting days:

I wonder what happens next as we have been told not much can happen prior to the legislation passing?

That shouldn't pose too much of a problem for the government. They don't want a lot to happen until after the election - keep the decks clear is the order of the day. If they can position the legislation to look like an Opposition obstruction then they can blame Abbott and his cohorts for lack of progress. Heads Rudd wins, Tails Abbott loses.
