The bill will go through with little or no alterations. Patrick just needed to say something but will sign this into law. Otherwise he would have not been all over the TV saying things like great job on the compromises, looking forward to closing this issue and such. If anything in the bill was going to be a "deal breaker" he would not be on TV talking up the bill. ~Joe
