We've been pretty blunt about the half-measures (and no-measures) the Dems have squandered their majority on, this year, but we want to show some appreciation for two bills that labor and community activists fought hard to get passed that will improve working conditions for farm workers and restore some degree of mobility and autonomy to undocumented immigrants in New York:
