House still looking for a quorum on landlord tenant bill?

Yesterday, we told you about the darkly amusing story of a little bill at the General Assembly on landlord-tenant matters. Because, it seems, practically every member of the House is a landlord in private life and had asked to be excused from voting, the House was having trouble mustering a quorum to vote on the issue.

Originally, the bill was delayed until Thursday, but now the hold has been extended till next Monday night.

Perhaps by that time, some members can figure out a way to sell their rental properties so that they’ll no longer have a conflict. There are undoubtedly plenty of realtors in the General Assembly who’d be happy to help them.  

As of yet, however, it does not appear that any member has asked to be excused from voting because he or she is a tenant.
