Schiavo update #2.

A senate committee voted 10-2 this morning to send the House bill to the Senate floor for a vote, tentatively scheduled to occur this evening (according to the AP).

The same story reports that the federal judge who was assigned the case brought by the Advocacy Center for Persons with Disabilities has dismissed the case, writing that "federal courts - other than the U.S. Supreme Court - are forbidden from interjecting themselves into matters already decided by state courts."
