Senate Filibuster Reform Outcome

A deal over Senate filibuster reform was reached late Wednesday, January 23, 2013.

Not sure what was being debated?  Check out the information about the Senate reform here.

The changes are modest and not the more deliberative process that we wanted, but without the calls and outreach of our members and allies, we would’ve had complete status quo. As The Hill points out in an article about the deal, this is the biggest change to filibuster rules in decades.

Thank you – to every member who made a call urging their Senator to support filibuster reform.  every call makes a difference.
