Checks and Balances at the LPC?

In a story about why the Landmarks Preservation Commission is suddenly so shitty, Nicolai Ouroussoff reports in the Times that there's a bill on the table (subcommittee vote at 11 a.m.!) that would require a public hearing on any building deemed eligible for landmark protection status. This is in response to the LPC's bizarre-yet-comical stonewalling on 2 Columbus Circle, but unfortunately for Landmark West, comes too late in the game to do anything for the controversial lollipop building. So, uh, back to another 12 hours of staring at the ShameCam while shoveling ice cream into your mouth.
