It's Time for Senate Rules Reform

With the new Congress, we need real change. Americans have been waiting impatiently for discussion and debate on immigration and the economic stagnation that has destroyed the American dream.

For too long in the U.S. Senate, tactics like the filibuster have been misused and abused. We have a chance to restore the filibuster to its original purpose and to streamline Senate procedures.

Ask your senators to co-sponsor Senate Resolution 4, which would make meaningful Senate rules changes, including requiring senators to speak on the floor if they wish to filibuster.
