The Senate is planning to vote this evening on a slightly modified version of Monday’s defeated bail-out bill. They’ve added a couple of things.

The revised bailout bill also includes a “Mental Health Parity” provision, which would require health insurance companies to cover mental illness at parity with physical illness.
