This is a departure for Bruno, who has been trying to pin the blamefor the delay on Bloomberg's pet project (not to mention its potentialdemise) on Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver, saying the Senate would notmove forward until Silver's majority Democratic conference made adecision.

Keep those phone calls coming.
