The Quinn and Oddo Show

Today was a good day for both for City Council Speaker Christine Quinn and Republican Minority Leader James Oddo.

Oddo’s bill to ban metal bats from high school baseball games passed (with Quinn’s blessing).

And Quinn scored a victory on a domestic partnership bill requiring that any benefit given to “a spouse” by the city also be given to “a domestic partner.” 43 members voted in favor of the bill.

Three members voted no: Simcha Fedler, Dennis Gallagher and Vinny Ignizio. Two abstained: Darlene Mealy and… James Oddo.
