Employee Free Choice Act Dead?...Really Dead?

Is the delusionally-dubbed Employee Free choice Act dead? According to Mark Pryor's office, it is.

The Arkansas Times is reporting that Senator Pryor stated through a spoksperson:
The Employee Free Choice Act is dead, and I am not working on a compromise to this bill. However, I continue to meet with business, labor and my colleagues to discuss the potential for common ground to make sure the process for forming a union is fair for workers and employers. This is an effort to bring new ideas to the table, but there is no draft and there remains a lot of distance between the various parties. [Emphasis added.]

While Iowa's Tom Harkin is still threatening to bring the job-destroying legislation to the Senate floor in July for an 'up or down' vote, he is apparently awaiting Big Al Franken's arrival in DC to put it out for a vote.

We'll keep you posted.
