Was much surprised to see in the newsboxes on my way to work that the state Senate passed the minimum wage bill yesterday. I knew that advocates were looking for something to happen, but this is great. As Rep. Cohen notes, there are differences between the House and Senate versions (the latter has a potential loophole), but this may mean that legislators can be pressured to hammer out their differences before they break for the summer. If you aren't sure where your representatives stand, call and let them know your thoughts!!
