Globe reports Senate Bill 1987 "dead" for now

I've written several posts recently (on July 30 and on August 12) about Senate Bill 1987, "An Act clearing titles to foreclosed properties" including that Governor Patrick had returned the bill to the legislature with a proposed amendment.  The Boston Globe reports today that the governor's action effectively killed the bill since the legislature is now out of session and is unlikely to reconvene to take up the amendment to this bill.  Here's the key line from the Globe story:
Patrick returned the bill to lawmakers with an amendment, asking them to give consumers 10 years to sue over titles instead of three. Patrick’s action effectively kills the legislation since the Legislature, which adjourned for the year at the end of July, is not expected to take up the amended bill.
