Emergency Caucus

House majority members are currently meeting in a private caucus on the third floor to discuss what steps to take now that Judge Cardoza has ruled on the Superferry.

The meeting attracted about half-a-dozen people with signs advocating against letting the ferry sail without first conducting an environmental assessment.

House minority members also met today and the Senate majority is expected to meet on the issue tomorrow.

They'll be trying to decide whether to convene a special legislative session to work out a way for the Superferry to resume service.
