We can fix the Senate – with your help

We’ve stepped up our campaign for Senate rules reform with a petition drive.  Please sign our petition urging Senators to cosponsor Senate Resolution 4.  The resolution makes several key changes to Senate rules to end the unprecedented obstruction that has brought the business of the Senate almost to a halt.
One piece of progressive legislation after another has been killed by filibuster.  Scores of judicial nominations have been delayed – and now some Republicans may use the filibuster against President Obama’s Cabinet nominees.

Without rules reform, the gridlock continues. That means the fate of almost every other big issue before Congress – from gun control to who sits on the federal bench to who leads the most important agencies in the executive branch - may depend on the outcome of the rules reform fight.
