This bill now has enough votes to pass; senators now have 24 hours to change their vote.

So let me see if I have this correctly, if nobody changes their mind on this we have to wait to see how Ford has it play out. And if the Puerto Rican's choose statehood then we start debate on the region to put it in?

Yes, that's correct.

That could take years and it wouldn't happen for at least another couple of years. If we waited Atlasia might not be here anymore or we could be waiting forever!

Just as my minor legal observation of this whole bill and everything:

Since there is no part of this bill that specifically calls immediately for a referendum on statehood by the people of Puerto Rico, no referendum can legally be called right now by anyone.

That's how the courts will call it; that's how it will be interpreted legally.

Once again, I will continue to advise everyone to read what you vote for before you vote.

Doesn't matter.  As I stated above, nothing will happen will this bill, because it doesn't really specify doing anything.

With seven votes in favor to one against, this bill has passed.

I hereby present it to the president for his signature.

I strongly advise the President to veto this bill. Not that anyone cares what a former Senator has to say, but I might as well try.

Ford is holding a plebescite on Monday, without this bill it can't happen so yes it needs to be signed. Smiley

I would like to put down my foot here: I'd rather not see areas being admitted we have no avatars for. Puerto Rico is enough, at least for now. Let's give some time for settling.

Areas we have no avatars for? I'm pretty sure this is a Puerto Rican avatar:
